The Far Northern Pacific bioregion, located in the Subarctic America (Nearctic) realm, is defined by the coastal forests of the Gulf of Alaska and adjoining tundra south of the Alaska Range, all the way to the Dixon Entrance off the coast of central British Columbia. It consists of two ecoregions – Northern Pacific Alaskan Coastal Forests (360), Pacific Coastal Mountain Icefields and Tundra (420) – and adjacent marine areas. The total land area of this bioregion is approximately 17 million hectares, not including icefield areas.
