Chile's forests may seem to be located 'at the end of the Earth.' They form a biological island in the far reaches of the southern hemisphere, with the Pacific ocean to the west, Antartica to the south, the Andes mountains to the east, and the world's driest place, the Atacama Desert, to the north.
