SciELO
The Scientific Digital Library Online - SciELO is an electronic library covering a specific assortment of Brazilian scientific journals. Brazil's sights extend from frozen-in-time colonial towns to otherworldly landscapes of crimson-rock canyons, thundering waterfalls and coral-fringed tropical islands. Then there's Brazil's biodiversity: legendary in scope, its diverse ecosystems boast the greatest assortment of plant and animal species found anywhere on earth.

There's the dancehall forró of the Northeast, twirling carimbó of the Amazon, scratch-skilled DJs of São Paulo and an endless variety of regional sounds that extends from the twangy nation music of the sunbaked sertanejo to the exhausting-edged reggae of Maranhão.
