south america

 

This area features plants ranging from the mountain highlands of the Andes to southern-most Argentina and Chile. Chile’s mattoral habitat, which has a mediterranean climate much like that of California’s, includes plants similar to those of California’s chaparral. This area features a young grove of monkey puzzle tress (Araucaria), wild fuchsias (Fuchsia), gigantic terrestrial bromeliads (Puya), giant-leaved gunneras (Gunnera) and several species of southern beech trees (Nothofagus).
