The bioregion spanning the forests of the Ozark mountains and highlands, located in the Southeast U.S. Savannas & Forests subrealm of Northern America, sits between the pine woods to the south and the central grassland-forest transition to the north, bordered to the east by the lower Mississippi valley. It contains two ecoregions – Ozark Highlands Mixed Forests (340), Ozark Mountain Forests (341) – and includes most of the Arkansas River. The total area of this bioregion is nearly 18 million hectares.
