    No, although there are large areas with heavy forest concentration, South America has diverse habitats and topography.  The Amazon Rainforest covers nearly all Suriname, Guyana, French Giuana and nearly of half of Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, and Colombia, but these countries also have many regions with sparse or little forest coverage.  There are also many countries with little forest area.  For example, Chile is extensively covered by the rocky Andes mountains and also is home to the huge, incredibly dry Atacama desert.  Argentina is famous for it’s Pampas (plains), mountains, and glacier regions.  Although the continent is home to some of the world’s most famous forests, it is definitely a geographically diverse area.
