Geocache Description:


[PORTUGUÊS]
Flora
Possuidora de uma flora característica comum, aquando da descoberta, à de outras ilhas atlânticas, a acção dos povoadores e de marinheiros vindos da África, Ásia, e América levou a uma profunda alteração no cobrimento vegetal da ilha. A agricultura e a pastorícia causaram o desaparecimento da floresta primitiva da qual restam vestígios nas zonas de mais difícil acesso, onde ainda é possível encontrar: Cedro da Ilha, Dragoeiro, Urze, Louro, Sanguinho e Faia. A introdução de outras plantas teve um importante papel na subsistência das populações e hoje caracterizam, embelezam e perfumam a ilha. São exemplos: Batata, Batata Doce, Eucalipto, Criptoméria, Hortênsias, Inhame, Laranja, Vinha e Milho. E a pastagem, que constitui hoje a cobertura vegetal predominante na ilha.
Fauna
A fauna primitiva deveria compor-se sobretudo de aves. Algumas das espécies então existentes ainda hoje nidificam em São Jorge. São o caso: Cagarro, Canário, Gaivota, Garajau, Melro, Pintassilgo e Tentilhão e, junto ao mar, de crustáceos e moluscos que ainda se encontram: Amêijoa, Caranguejo, Craca e Lapa brava.
