Specie or element:
Specie

Description:
Araucaria angustifolia (Bert.) O. Ktze. is a native tree species of major importance in southern Brazil. It is a regional symbol due to its iconic shape and stature in the landscape; its wood was once economically important and its seeds are an important source of food for fauna and are presently used in regional cuisine. Despite its importance and apparent abundance, the species is facing extinction caused mainly by unregulated exploitation and deforestation. The giant araucaria trees with > 2.0 m in diameter are rare and only 14 individuals could be found in Southern Brazil. 1st position – Name: Pinheirão; São Joaquim/SC; diameter: 3.25 m; height: 39.2 m; volume: 106 m³. 2nd – Pinheiro Grosso; Canela/RS; 2.68 m; 39 m; 72.1 m³. 3rd – Embrapa 1; Caçador/SC; 2.38 m; 44 m, 62.4 m³.
