North Alaskan Tundra bioregion

The bioregion’s land area is provided in units of 1,000 hectares. The protection goal is the combined Global Safety Net (GSN1) areas for the component ecoregions. The protection level indicates the percentage of the GSN goal that is currently protected on a scale of 0-10. N/A means data is not available at this time.

The northern section of the Alaska subrealm, located in the Subarctic America (Nearctic) realm, is delineated by the Brooks Range. The North Alaskan Tundra bioregion is entirely made up of three tundra ecoregions – Arctic Coastal Tundra (407), Arctic Foothills Tundra (408), Brooks-British Range Tundra (411) – including the adjacent marine areas of the Beaufort and Chukchi seas. The total land area of this bioregion is 34 million hectares. 

The North Alaskan Tundra bioregion is part of the Alaska subrealm and is made up of three ecoregions: (1) Arctic Coastal Tundra (2) Arctic Foothills Tundra (3) Brooks-British Range Tundra.
