The drainage basin of the Amazon River is covered by the forest. Some of the famous species of the world are found in the Amazon Rain Forest. The Amazon Rainforest is also known as The Amazon Jungle or Amazonia. It is the largest rainforest of the world spread over an area of around 5,500,000 square kilometers. Over half of the remaining forest of the world is represented by it.

Within Brazil, the majority of the Amazon Rainforest lies but parts of it are extended into French Guiana, Suriname, Guyana, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. The forest itself is defined as an Equatorial Moist Broad-Leaf Forest. Along with this, some regional variations are also present inevitably including swap and natural savannah. Through examination of a map of the region, the immense size of the Amazon Rainforest can be acknowledged. Little of the area of the rainforest is inhabited. Yet still it can be considered as the similar size as that of the United States. The biggest communications routes are formed by the rivers and habitation areas are confined exclusively to riverside locations.
