The Patagonia Steppe bioregion, located in the Southern America (Neotropical) realm, incorporates most of the temperate grassland biome of South America, between the Andes Mountains to the west and the Espinal drylands to the east. The bioregion contains two ecoregions – Low Monte (577), Patagonian Steppe (578) – and includes the Islas Malvinas (Falkland Islands) and adjacent marine areas in the southern Atlantic Ocean. The total land area of this bioregion is approximately 93 million hectares.
