Abstract: The biogeographic map of South America showing the biogeographic units up to the provincial level is published in this paper as an initial advance. From Honduras (Central America) to the Antarctic Peninsula we recognize: 1 kingdom, 3 subkingdoms, 4 superegions, 13 regions and 53 biogeographic provinces. A brief description is given of each one of the 13 regions, indicating its limits and main bioclimatic factors. The biogeographic map is accompanied on a smaller scale by a bioclimate map, and another subkingdom map and a physical geography map.
