Comprising the western half of Patagonia at the bottom of South America and located in the Southern America (Neotropical) realm, the Chilean bioregion is defined by a myriad of waterways intertwined with coastal rainforests and includes Chile’s Lake District and several large glaciers at the southernmost extent of the Andes Mountains. The bioregion contains two ecoregions – Magellanic Subpolar Forests (561), Valdivian Temperate Forests (563) – and includes Tierra del Fuego and adjacent marine areas in both the southern Pacific and Atlantic oceans. The total land area of this bioregion is more than 41 million hectares.
