Eastern Hyper - Oceanic Barrens

northshoreeco.jpg

This ecoregion occurs on the extreme south coast of the Avalon and Burin Peninsulas and on the northeast coast near Bay de Verde and Cape Feels. Although this ecoregion is 200m or less in elevation the extreme oceanic climate precludes the development of forest other than Balsam Fir krummholz. The heaths in this area have a close affinity to oceanic parts of Northern Scotland and Southern Norway.
