Faroe Islands boreal grasslands

WWF Abstract

This collection of 18 islands in the North Atlantic provides 696 miles (1,120 km) of rugged seacoast where seabirds roost and breed on the cliffs and the steep, grass-covered slopes. Only the thinnest layer of peat soil covers these rocky islands, permitting only a small amount of vegetation to grow.
