A forest biome is the broadest regional classification of a plant and animal community recognized by botanists and forest scientists. A forest biome is a zone where a predictable tree, plant, and animal community exists resulting from the effects of climate, soil, the presence or lack of moisture and other physical and topographical variables. Northwest Coast The Northwest Coast was the name given by 18th-century navigators and traders to the great arc of Pacific coast and offshore islands stretching from present-day northern California to an ill-defined point along the Alaska coast - at Prince William Sound or even Cook Inlet.
FLORA OF THE PACIFIC COAST Here the most prominent species is Castilleia min- iata the numerous red spikes of which impart a rich warm color to the vegetation. Next in import- ance are the white heads of Selinum, which overtop all else save where the clumps of lupine (Lupinus polyphyllus) carry their blue racemes still higher. VEGETATION OF NORTHWESTERN NORTH AMERICA with reference to the vegetation. Because most Alaskan vegetation grows only in unconsolidated deposits, which are widespread, studies of surficial geology must be concerned with the vegetation. Many early Cited by:

This best-selling field guide features species of trees, shrubs, wildflowers, aquatics, grasses, ferns, mosses and lichens found along the coast from Oregon to Alaska. Color photographs and line drawings help you identify and learn about the fascinating plants of the Pacific Northwest coast/5.
Plants of the Pacific Northwest Coast: Washington, Oregon, British Columbia & Alaska was originally published in and has been updated in This is the go-to reference for plants of the Pacific Northwest.
The Introduction contains a section on Plants in Cited by: This book is concerned with the terrestrial vegetation of the Pacific islands in the tropical realm. Aquatic vegetation will only be treated marginally where appropriate. The West Coast or Pacific Coast is the coastline along which the continental Western United States meets the North Pacific a region, this term most often refers to the coastal states of California, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska.
More specifically, it refers to an area defined on the east by the Alaska Range, Cascade Range, Sierra Nevada, and Mojave Desert, and on the west by the Time zones: UTC−8 (PST). Bogs are widely distributed in cold, temperate climes, mostly in boreal ecosystems in the Northern world's largest wetland is the peat bogs of the Western Siberian Lowlands in Russia, which cover more than a million square kilometres.
Large peat bogs also occur in North America, particularly the Hudson Bay Lowland and the Mackenzie River Basin. brings tropical Caribbean water to the east coast of North America and upper Western Europe. makes local climates uniform so that Great Britain has the same climate as Greenland.
is the major Atlantic Ocean current that warms the eastern coast of South America. is the source of "El Nino" and is a major fishing ground. The Pacific Northwest coast is one of the most spectacular corners of the planet.
Its magnificent terrain, unique plants, and abundant wildlife make it an explorer’s paradise. Author and local expert Robert Steelquist knows every nook and cranny, and is right by your side, pointing out the natural wonders casual visitors often miss/5(13).
Vegetation formations and associations of the zonobiomes along the North American Pacific Coast: From northern California to Alaska Article PDF Available March An island mountain archipelago reaches south from Alaska, down the British Columbia coast, and through Puget Sound.
Vancouver Island, at more t square kilometers, is the largest island along North America's Pacific : $ Bogs Swamps and marshes are generally found in warm climates. Bogs are more common in cold or even Arctic areas in North America, Europe, and Asia. They also exist at high altitudes in warmer regions, such as the Sierra Nevada in the United States.
Bogs are often called moors or fens in Europe, and muskegs in Canada. With his investigation of slavery on the Northwest Coast of North America, Leland Donald makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the aboriginal cultures of this area.
He shows that Northwest Coast servitude, relatively neglected by researchers in the past, fits an appropriate cross-cultural definition of slavery.
Arguing that slaves and slavery were central to these hunting. Asia - Asia - Plant life: An immense range of vegetation is found in Asia, the result of the continent’s wide diversity of latitude, elevation, and climate.
Natural conditions, however, are not entirely responsible for the associations of trees, plants, and grasses of Asia; natural landscapes have been transformed by more than eight millennia of farming and other human activities.

Relatively few understory species are able to flourish in a mature redwood forest because of the extreme shade, wet soil, deep leaf litter, and redwood root competition. Western Sword Fern grow well in this environment. It occurs along the Pacific coast from southeast Washington south to southern California.
These forests of western Ecuador represent the northern extent of Pacific coast dry forest in South America, and are host to a number of endemic species (see decsription above for details).
Linework for this ecoregion follows UNESCO (), from which the following formation were lumped within western Ecuador: tropical evergreen seasonal. The North Pacific Coastal Forests occupy a narrow (about km wide) coastal band extending from the southern portion of the Alexander Archipelago to the Prince William Sound region and eastern Kodiak Island.
This ecoregion contains more than one-fourth of the world's coastal temperate rainforest. Some of the world’s most important fisheries are supported by the continental shelf biome – for example, those on the Grand Banks and other shallow waters of northeastern North America, in the nearshore waters of western North and South America, and in the Gulf of Mexico.
