Ecoregions


The World Wildlife Fund defines an ecoregion as a "large unit of land or water containing a geographically distinct assemblage of species, natural communities, and environmental conditions".

The ecoregions of the island of Newfoundland were defined by Damman (1983). Those of Labrador were defined by W. J. Meades (1989).

The climate in our "limestone regions" varies widely. It is therefore not surprising that our "limestone regions" span more than one ecoregion:


Smaller, outlying, "limestone" localities occur particularly in Central Newfoundland Forest - Northcentral Subregion, and North Shore Forest
