Klamath-Siskiyou forests

WWF Abstract

A global center of biodiversity, the Klamath-Siskiyou Forests is one of the four richest temperate coniferous forests in the world. The diverse habitats that make up this ecoregion are filled with unusual communities and many species found nowhere else in the world. Not only does this ecoregion include many different forest types, but it also includes the largest concentration of wild and scenic rivers in the United States. Some of the interesting plants and animals that call this ecoregion home include the northern spotted owl, tailed frog, several species of Pacific salmon, bald eagle, and large carnivores such as the mountain lion and wolverine. Even some of the local plants are meat-eaters, such as the cobra lily. This is just one of the 3,500 native plants species found here.
