What you are describing as the Amazon Rainforest can clearly be read on any Map as only the Amazon Basin.

    Hi Anita,
    Which page are you referring to? If you can give me a url/web address, I can have look at the map.

    The Amazon Basin decribes the geography (the land area defined by the Amazon River and it's tributaries), whereas the Amazon Rainforest decribes the vegetation.
    So in a way it is more or less the same thing, as the Amazon Rainforest grows within the Amazon Basin.

    Hope this helps and all the best,
