Biotope description: Mamberamo is a river on the north-west New Guinea island, in the Indonesian province of Papua. The valley of the Mamberamo River is home to many indigenous peoples of New Guinea, including those who previously had no contact with Western civilization. It is also known for its great biodiversity. Poorly studied region, where except the first researcher Franssen Herderschee Heiko Bleher came with his team. The biotope was reconstructed using the results of his research. River bottom is covered with white sand, driftwood, there are ferns Microsorum pteropus, Nymphaea here.

Simply well done, very good research, all agreed. Congratulations Vera.
