South Avalon-Burin oceanic barrens

WWF Abstract

This small ecoregion is restricted to the coastal areas of eastern Newfoundland. Streams have cut deeply into the landscape, creating a rugged, rocky coastline. These headlands are exposed to high winds, cool temperatures, and salty spray for most of the year. The moss-heath plant community found in this ecoregion is unique to North America.
