New Britain-New Ireland montane rain forests

WWF Abstract

If you hiked up to the mountains of this island ecoregion, you would notice that the landscape looks very similar to the lowlands√∑at first. Gradually, however, you would find the trees becoming shorter, leaves becoming smaller and thicker, and tree crowns becoming smaller (Mueller-Dombois and Fosberg 1998). The air would become more humid as the temperature dropped. You would witness an incredible diversity of plants and animals living in these forests.
