Vegetation zone of the foothills and mountain valleys at low elevation where grassland mixes with evergreen forest.
a section of a mountainous region below the timberline having cool, moist temperatures and dominated by evergreen trees
a cool subalpine upland region located just below timberline; regions characterized by coniferous vegetation
relating to the zone of relatively cool, moist upland slopes dominated by large coniferous trees below the timberline.
of or inhabiting mountainous regions; "montane flowers"
Of or relating to mountains
Environments found in, or related to, mountainous regions.
Pertaining to mountain slopes, and often, in particular, to the mostly forested zone extending downslope from the subalpine forest zone.
The region between 6,000 and 9,000 feet altitude. Usually contains a mixed forest of pine, fir, spruce and aspen.
the biogeographic zone made up of relatively moist, cool upland slopes below timberline and characterized by the presence of large evergreen trees as a dominant life form
pertaining to a mountainous region
describes the zone in mountainous regions where the influence of altitude (vertical relief) results in local climatic regimes that are sufficiently different from those in the adjacent lowlands as to cause a complex vertical climate-vegetation-soil zonation; includes vegetation at the base of a mountain when it is different from lowland vegetation.
A cool, moist ecological zone usually located near the timberline and usually dominated by evergreen trees.
living in mountain areas, mainly.
Pertaining to mountainous country.
Montane is a biogeographic term which refers to highland areas located below the tree-line. Montane regions generally have cooler temperatures and often have higher rainfall than the adjacent lowland regions, and are frequently home to distinct communities of plants and animals. Areas above the timberline are known as alpine regions.
