Midwestern Canadian Shield forests

WWF Abstract

If you were to fly over this ecoregion, you'd see a rolling landscape dotted with lakes, wetlands, and rock outcroppings. Beautifully colored lichens--a symbiotic combination of algae and fungi-cover many of the rocks. Wetlands called bogs and fens are dominated by black spruce. This ecoregion also supports part of the large northern boreal coniferous forest.
