Figure 5.1 reproduces—with the kind permission of the Publisher, Elsevier (Munich) [Urban & Fischer]—the Patagonian sector of the Vegetationskarte von Südamerika by K. Hueck and P. Seibert (Stuttgart: G. Fischer, 1981, 2nd ed.). What follows, is a concise characterisation of the vegetation units according to K. Hueck and P. Seibert. Regarding the names of the species, I follow Zuloaga et al.; for Chilean species not mentioned by Zuloaga, I follow Hoffmann; in brackets, the differing synonyms used by Hueck and Seibert.
