This ecoregion is described as an "espinal", literally meaning a thorny deciduous shrubland forest.
This Argentine espinal ecoregion is located in central Argentina extending from central Santa Fe through the province of Córdoba to the north of San Luis.
The espinal ecoregion can be divided into two subregions, the carob subregion in the north and the caldén subregion in the south.
The plant species found in the espinal are generally also found in other phytogeographic ecoregions of Argentina, particularly the chaco region of which it is considered an impoverished southern continuation.
This idea, which is the _dors espinal_, -- the backbone -- of Christianity, never for once entered the mind of the European.
