Montane subhumid shrubby-grassland steppe geocomplex biome. 1. Humid shrubby-grassland steppe: Gamochaeta nivalis-Festuca gracillima community. Oriental Andean piedmont on humic well-drained soils (umbrisols). 2. Criomorphic open thicket: Oreopolus glacialis-Empetrum rubrum community. Hillside oriental Andean piedmont, with geliturbated soils. 3. Wet bunch-grassland: Festuca pallescens community and peatland bogs: Caltha sagittata communities. 4. Dry shrubby-grassland steppe: Verbena ameghinoi-Festuca gracillima community. 5. Festuca pallescens flooded grasslands and Carex subantarctica-Eriachaenium magellanicum community. Lacustrine litoral aquatic vegetation. 6. Halo-hygrophilous shrubland: Lepidophyllum cupressiformis communities. 7. Saline coastal wetland shrubland and thicket: Frankenia chubutensis-Atriplex macrostyla community. 8. Saline coastal wetland prostrate thicket: Salicornia ambigua-Suaeda argentinensis community. Graphic geobotanical interpretation based on Roig et al. (In Boelcke et al. 1985).
