In order for the plants/trees not to lose water through evaporation, many plants have adapted over time and have grown hard leaves, also known as a Sclerophyll vegetation. The word “Sclerophyll” comes from the Greek sklēros (hard) and phyllon (leaf) which stay evergreen
Chile’s climate is as unique as its landscape. There are at least 7 major different climate types all hosted in one country: desert & semi-arid climates in the north, a Mediterranean climate in Central Chile and humid subtropical climates in Easter Island.
We believe that Chile offers the most dramatic and varied landscapes on earth… but of course we are biased! Due to its unique geography, Chile stands out from all its neighbouring countries. In many ways, it is like an island because natural borders cut it off: the desert in the North, the Andes Mountain range alongside the East and Antarctica in the South. This geographical isolation provides a safe haven for its flora & fauna, passionately protected by the Ministry of Agriculture.
