Abstract

ALVAREZ, Miguel et al. DIVERSITY OF THE FLORA, VEGETATION AND HABITATS IN THE CHONOS ARCHIPELAGO: (AISEN REGION, CHILE). Anales Instituto Patagonia (Chile) [online]. 2010, vol.38, n.1, pp.35-56. ISSN 0718-686X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-686X2010000100002.

We compared the flora and vegetation of the islands Guamblin, Ipún, Stokes and Kent belonging to the National Reserve "Las Guaitecas" in the Chonos Archipelago (Chilean Patagonia). These islands are inhabited and exposed to the Pacific and the West winds, covered with evergreen forest, Sphagnum magellanicum-bogs in depressions and cushion bogs with Donatia fascicularis in the highlands. Due to subsidence or ground surveys during the earthquakes of 1960, some of them have sandy beaches with several habitats and rocky plateaus colonized by shrubs. The floristic differences between the islands are principally determined by their differences on the type of bed-rock and their relief.

Keywords : Floristic similitude; vegetation; island; Chilean Patagonia.
