Virtual Issue: Ecología en América del Sur (Ecology in South America)

November 2013
The continent of South America is home to an overwhelming range of ecosystems and ecological interactions, due to its north–south orientation that spans over 60 degrees of latitude, a diversity of topography from the floodplain of the Amazon to the Andean mountain chain, the longest mountain range in the world, and a resulting range of climate from the driest desert in the world, the Atacama, to the Valdivian rainforests at the southern tip of the South American peninsula. Taking an exotic journey in this Virtual Issue will give the reader an idea of the breadth of topics and insights that can only be found in the diverse continent of South America.
