    Description

    The Northeast bioregion extends from Maine to Maryland and northern Virginia, south along the northwest slope of the Appalachians to Tennessee, and west to the ecotone between prairie and woodland from Minnesota to northeastern Oklahoma. It is composed of a wide variety of landforms and vegetation types. Elevation ranges from sea level along the Atlantic coast, to 243 to 600 feet (74 to 183 m) at the Great Lakes, to over 6,000 feet (1,800 m) in the northern Appalachian Mountains.
