THE NATIONAL PARKS OF ARGENTINA AND OTHER PROTECTED AREASOriginally produced as part of the series "La Naturaleza en lberoamerica" (Nature in Latin America), by INCAFO, with the intention of presenting the protected natural areas of this part of the world, this volume has a much broader aim than merely inventorying such sites in Argentina."The National Parks of Argentina" is in reality the first comprehensive effort of depicting, in book-form, the numerous ecoregions of Argentina, with their ecological features and their main plant and animal components, having both the layman and the specialist in mind.This is achieved without neglecting descriptions of the main protected areas in this country; all its National Parks, as well as those firmly established or more promising natural reserves of the private and the provincial systems, are covered. These sites are presented here as subtopics within the chapters dealing with the respective ecoregions, in order to combine a wider understanding of their ecology and their specific characteristics.The patchwork of the ecological quilt covering Argentina is here depicted, and through these pages the reader is presented with an overall view of the biological richness of the country.
