Description: The southern portion of Argentina is called Patagonia, and is located between 37° and 55° south latitude. Across this region, there is a strong topographic and environmental gradient. Precipitation decreases from the western mountains towards the east and temperatures from north to south. These geographic gradients impose different structural patterns of soils and vegetation, as well as different patterns of ecosystem functioning (soil water dynamics, nutrient cycling, net primary production, etc).

Keywords: Andean-Patagonian forest, steppe, afforestation, Pinus ponderosa, Pinus contorta, Pseudotsuga menziesii, mycorrhizae, bareroot nurseries
