Ecoregions: Globe Cut Away

Ecoregions are large areas of similar climate where ecosystems recur in predictable patterns. We provide resources and education on the origins of these patterns and their relevance to sustainable design and planning.

Who's Using Ecoregions

Many federal agencies and private organizations use a system of land classification based on the ecoregion concept. Some of these include USDA Forest Service, U.S Geological Survey, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, The Nature Conservancy, and The Sierra Club. Projects include biodiversity analysis, landscape and regional level forest planning, and the study of mechanisms of forest disease.
