Why is Peru two-thirds of the way covered in amazon rain forest?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Peru's climate is the primary reason why two-thirds of the country is covered in Amazon rainforest. Located in the northern part of South America, Peru is part of the tropics and has a tropical climate. This climate is perfect for the growth of rainforest and is responsible for the dense jungle that covers the country. The tropical climate includes:

  • High rainfall
  • High temperatures
  • High humidity
  • Heavy cloud cover

These conditions are ideal for the growth of the rainforest and have allowed the Amazon rainforest to thrive in Peru. In addition, Peru's topography also contributes to the presence of the Amazon rainforest. Peru's terrain is made up of mountains, valleys, and river systems, which provide the perfect environment for the rainforest to spread and flourish. The combination of the tropical climate, topography, and other factors, make Peru two-thirds of the way covered in Amazon rainforest.

Is Peru a state?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The word "state" has two different meanings. The term "sovereign state" means a country or nation that is not part of another country. In the US, the word "state" means one of the 50 separate political entities that form the entire country as a federal (federated) republic.

Peru is a separate country, in western South America. It can be described as a "nation-state", but it is not a state in some larger government.

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It is legal for United States citizens to get married in Peru, but any US citizens who wish to get married in Peru must present certain legal documents to the Peruvian authorities in order to become legally married in the country. First, the citizens must present a sworn statement known a Certificado de Solteria, which states that they are both legally free to marry in Peru. The Certificado de Solteria can be obtained by contacting the American Citizen Service at the American Embassy. It must be signed in front of a consular official and notarized by a consular official to be valid.

Both US citizens will also need to provide Peruvian authorities with a copy of their birth certificate that has been translated into Spanish.
