                         with angiosperms adapted to survive extreme floods and droughts. 
                         About 14% of the Amazon Basin is covered by floodplains, which are 
                         fundamental to river productivity, biogeochemical cycling and 
                         trophic flow, and have been subject to human occupation since 
                         Pre-Colombian times. The botanical knowledge about these forests 
                         is still incomplete, and current forest degradation rates are much 
                         higher than the rate of new botanical surveys. Herein we report 
                         the results of three years of botanical surveys in floodplain 
                         forests of the Central Amazon. This checklist contains 432 tree 
                         species comprising 193 genera and 57 families. The most 
                         represented families are Fabaceae, Myrtaceae, Lauraceae, 
                         Sapotaceae, Annonaceae, and Moraceae representing 53% of the 
                         identified species. This checklist also documents the occurrence 
                         of approximately 236 species that have been rarely recorded as 
                         occurring in white-water floodplain forests.",
