| Book Description: |
The ARCN parks contain a broad array of the ecosystems typical of the subarctic (boreal forest or taiga), and arctic (tundra) biomes of northwestern North America. The boundary, or ecotone, between these two biomes is also represented in many different phases. Because these parks encompass large areas of mountainous terrain, including a major portion of the Brooks Range, they also include examples of virtually every type of alpine situation to be found in northern Alaska.
