|Spanish term or phrase: Regiones VI a XI|
|The text I am translating deals with the distribution of bamboo species in Chile.|
My country is divided into Regions - I to XII plus Región Metropolitana (Santiago and small surrounding towns).
MY QUESTION IS, SHOULD I USE ARABIC OR ROMAN NUMERALS IN ENGLISH?

Regions VI to XI
Almost all of Chile’s frontier forests are found in and around the Andean Mountain Range. In the Coastal Mountain Range, frontier forests are concentrated mostly in Region X, where they constitute only 7.5 percent of the country’s frontier forest tracts of at least 5,000 hectares.
Because of the high degree of native forest fragmentation, there is practically no frontier forest left in the northern regions. Regions VI and VII contain only fragments of undisturbed or minimally altered native forests, ranging in size from 6.25 to 5,000 hectares. The combined area of these forest fragments for Region VI, for example, is 1,084 hectares, or 0.91 percent of the region’s native forests. For Region VII, the total area of forest cover fragments is 22,575.4 hectares, or 6.10 percent of regional native forests. For these regions, the presence of these forest fragments is crucial, because they represent unique remnants of the original forest cover and have considerable biological and strategic value as genetic reservoirs for maintenance of the ecological and evolutionary processes of these forest ecosystems. This genetic heritage can be the basis for future restoration activities and therefore for the development of sustainable forest management, and economic activity of great importance for the country.
Region VIII contains more than 17,000 hectares of frontier forest, representing 2.2 percent of the native forests in the region. Because of the small proportion of frontier forests left in the region, and given the fact that this region has the highest level of forestry plantation activities, it is very important to monitor changes in land use and forest cover in this area. Conserving the forests of Region VIII is crucial, given that, as in Regions VI and VII, these are the only remaining examples of forests that once covered the central parts of the country. This would entail establishing either public or private protected areas and incorporating forest conservation into management and plantation zoning plans.
