Torngat Mountain tundra

WWF Abstract

This ecoregion is made up of steep mountains and deep, glacier-carved, U-shaped valleys and fjords along the Labrador Sea. At high elevations, about half the surface is bare rock and half is covered by lichens, mosses, and sedges. White birch and willow thickets grow on middle-elevation rocky slopes. Wetter sites support arctic black spruce and mixed evergreen and deciduous shrubs, with mosses covering the ground.
