Southern Andean steppe

WWF Abstract

The Southern Andean Steppe hosts a diversity of habitats, including grassland, sparse sub-Antarctic forest, scrub forest, deciduous thicket, and wetland. This habitat mosaic extends north and south through the western edge of Argentina into Chile. To the east, the steppe blends into the great expanse of temperate grasslands in the neighboring Argentine Monte ecoregion.
