Upper Midwest forest-savanna transition

WWF Abstract

In this "in-between" ecoregion, aptly named the Upper Midwest Forest/Savanna Transition Zone, a unique blend of habitats separates the grasslands to its west and the forests to its east. This transition of habitats includes a mix of forests, savannas, and open woodlands. Today, the oak-savanna of this ecoregion is one of the world's most endangered ecosystems.
