Atacama Desert, Wildlife and Landscapes © Fantástico Sur EditorialAtacama Desert - Wildlife and Landscapes

Enrique Couve & Claudio F. Vidal (2005) Fantástico Sur Editorial, Chile. 100 pages. Hardback. Bilingual (English | Spanish) edition. ISBN 978-956-8007-13-X

The Atacama is Chile's largest desert and like the world's other great deserts, such as the Kalahari in Africa or the Great Desert of Australis, it lies in the Tropic of Capricorn. Unlike these other desert, the Atacama encompasses a range of extreme altitudes that enrich the complexity of its ecosystems. The Atacama is considered the most arid desert on the planet. Its skies remain clear over 300 days a year and in some areas no record of rainfall exists.

With this book we invite you to explore the beauty of the ancient mountains, the breadth of their varied ecosystems and the wealth of biological diversity throughout the diverse ecosystems of the wide and majestic Atacama Desert.
