Entry ID: IAIDIS668

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: "In this article we review the main
characteristics of the Patagonian climate and the spatial and temporal patterns
of the most important climatic variables and the influence of climate on
ecosystem processes. The winter distribution of precipitation determines an
