Patagonian Forests

This forest lies in the Patagonian Andes and Tierra del Fuego, in both Argentina and Chile. It is cold and humid, mostly covered by thick beech forests of the genus Nothofagus, and the living fossil “Araucarias” (in the North). Numerous endemic species are found here, in one of the wildest regions of South America.
