Ambiente Natural

Información Geológica y Geomorfológica
Es un área montañosa con vertientes escarpadas en donde se localizan las mayores elevaciones de la Isla, conformada por valles, piedemontes y abras. En él nacen los ríos y quebradas principales de caudal constante, lo que permite un régimen permanente de agua durante todo el año, aunado a la espesura y cobertura de la vegetación que evita la evaporación excesiva. Alcanza su punto culminante en el llamado Cerro San Juan o Cerro Grande (930 msnm.)


Vegetación

Con una altura cercana a los 1.000 msnm y en un área relativamente pequeña, este parque se caracteriza por presentar una gran diversidad de paisajes, observándose en las laderas inferiores entre 200 - 600 msnm, bosques tropófilos basimontanos semideciduos con una altura entre 10 - 25 m. y estrato arbóreo relativamente denso donde destacan el indio desnudo Bursera simaruba y el copey Clusia rosea, Clusia minor, Clusia flava, árbol que por su abundancia en la zona le da el nombre al cerro. En esta área se localizan especies endémicas como Mikania johnstoni y Argythammia erubescen. Entre los 500 - 750 msnm se localiza el bosque ombrófilo submontano subsiempre verde, denso, con alturas que oscilan entre un sotobosque relativamente bien desarrollado donde destacan el araguaney Tabebuia chrysantha, el icaquito o hierro Chrysobalanus icaco, epífitas endémicas como Croton margaritensis y Clerodendrum margaritense. Por encima de los 800 msnm. se observa una vegetación arbustivo-herbácea achaparrada de 1 - 3 m. de alto, muy densa, donde están presentes especies endémicas como Blakea monticola, Epidendrum johnstonii y la Inga micrantha.

Fauna

Es fundamentalmente endémica, entre los mamíferos se encuentran el mono capuchino margariteño o mono machín Cebus apella margaritae y una subespecie de ardilla de margarita Sciurus granatensis margaritae , el venado caramerudo de margarita Odocoileus virginianus margaritae, el conejo de margarita Sylvilagus floridanus margaritae , destaca un batracio del lugar: la rana del copey Hyla rubra y una culebra endémica de la zona la cazadora Drymarchon corais margaritae. La avifauna muy rica en especies está constituida por el mochuelo de hoyo Speotyto brachyptera, la pavita hormiguera Glaucidium margaritae, el tordo negro de margarita Dolichonys oryzivorus, el gonzalito margariteño Icterus nigrogularis helioeides, el tordo común Quiscalus insularis, el popular guayamate Cardinalis phoenicius, la macagua o soisola Crypturellus erythropus margaritae.
