central section of the Coast Cordillera between the
Nirgua Massif and the Unare Depression comprises
surface. The local disparities are expressed in the
contrasting landscapes, where a peculiar topography
and changing human characteristics can be
altitude of these landscapes permits the formation
of several thermic floors, which are not as plenty
as the Andean ones; but, nevertheless, make possible
the development of isothermal temperate climates
with an abundant rainfall, excepting the dry season
period. The climate is warmer in the most depressed
zones. At the coast, the characteristics of the
xerophytic vegetation in La Guaira contrast with the
ones of the humid and warm environment of the
