(1983) also produced a summary of Chilean rain forest types, identifying three major forest groupings which contain both evergreen and deciduous species: the more northerly and species-rich Valdivian rain forests, the more southerly and species-poor Magellanic rain forests, and the transitional North Patagonian rain forests. (These ecoregions parallel recognized zones in the coastal temperate rain forests of North America, the Olympic, North Pacific and Sub-Boreal divisions, respectively.) Valdivian forests are dominated by Nothofagus spp. (southern beech), Weinmanhia trichosperma, species of Lauraceae, Myrtaceae, and a few gymnosperms such as Podocarpus spp., Araucaria araucana (monkey puzzle tree), and Fitzroya cupressoides (alerce cedar).
