Puerto Rico is an attractive region for urban studies: first, it is a densely populated island where urbanization has occurred under an ineffectual plan of land development that has resulted in uncontrolled urban sprawl (Puerto Rico Vision 1); second, the landscape is in rapid transformation due to urban expansion and forest recovery (Lopez et al.,Helmer, ); and finally, the island Cited by: ern Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico, due to its relatively short width and its east-west running mountain chain, does not have long rivers or large lakes.

Its longest rivers are La Plata, Loíza, and Arecibo, all draining to the north, and the Añasco, draining to the west. The interaction between the two expanding types of land cover (forest and urban) and the receding agricultural lands is well documented in the municipality of Luquillo in northeastern Puerto Rico, which includes the interface between one of the oldest forest reserves in the Caribbean (Luquillo Experimental Forest) and the urbanized San Juan Cited by: Puerto Rico, in the 1,mile Antilles island chain that reaches from Florida to Venezuela and separates the Caribbean from the Atlantic, is estimated to be million years old.
