Scandinavian coastal conifer forests

WWF Abstract

Deep, cold inlets of the sea, called fjords, penetrate this ecoregion and divide it into narrow strips of land. Along the fjords, steep cliffs rise from the sea. Numerous islands are part of this dramatic landscape. Some of the islands have trees, but many are dominated by barren rock with sparse vegetation. These islands are home to numerous seabirds and seals. Coniferous forests can be found from the rocky coasts inland to where less precipitation yields Scandinavian montane birch forests and grasslands.
