Lowland & montane evergreen seasonal sclerophyllous geocomplex. 1. Benthonic macro algal coastal vegetation: Lessonia trabeculata-Durvillea antarctica communities. 2. Saxicolous aero-halophile vegetation: Calandrinia grandiflora-Nolana crassulifolia community. 3. Saxicolous coastal vegetation: Neoporteria subgibbosa-Trichocereus littoralis community. 4. Evergreen sclerophyllous woodland: Peumus boldus-Cryptocarya alba community. Lowland zonal climacic association to ca. 650 m altitude. 5. Riparian forest and woodland: Persea lingue-Crinodendron patagua communities. Lowland riverbanks vegetation, seasonally flooded. 6. Saxicolous lowland vegetation: Puya chilensis-Trichocereus chilensis community. Rocks and cliffs. 7. Lowland dry sclerophyllous woodland: Quillaja saponaria-Cryptocarya alba communities. On stony north-exposed hillsides. 8. Montane saxicolous vegetation: Puya coerulea communities. 9. Montane evergreen sclerophyllous woodland: Kageneckia oblonga-Quillaja saponaria communities. 10. Secondary dry deciduous thorn woodland: Lithraea caustica-Acacia caven community. In dry rain shadow inner flat valleys with somewhat shallow phreatic levels. 11. Upper montane evergreen sclerophyllous dry woodland: Quillaja saponaria-Lithraea caustica communities, and montane saxicolous shrubland & thicket: Puya coerulea-Trichocereus chiloensis community. 12.
