South America Information

South America is the fourth largest continent on planet Earth, and its inhabitants account for about six percent of the world's population. The Cordillera mountain ranges, known here as the Andes, continue along the eastern side of the Pacific coast between the northern and southern extremities of South America. Lowlands, including the huge Amazon basin and fertile Pampas plains, extend eastward from the foothills of the Andes. Much of northern South America has a tropical climate, while the southern latitudes are affected by the polar Antarctic climate. Between these extremes lie the cool and temperate Patagonian regions.
