Ecoregions of Idaho Introduction to Natural Resources
Objectives Identify and describe ecoregions of Idaho
Pacific Bunchgrass Sagebrush Grassland Juniper Woodland Salt Desert Shrubland Coniferous Forest & Mountain Meadows Ecoregions of Idaho
Characterized by: Deep, rich soils Moist climate Palouse and Camas Prairies Precipitation: 12-30” Today, area is mostly farmland Pacific Bunchgrass
Characterized by: Drier soils Hotter climate Plains, plateaus, valleys south of the Snake River Precipitation: 10-15” Classic western rangeland type Sagebrush Grassland
Characterized by: Shallow, rocky soils Hotter climate Southern Idaho (Owyhee area) Precipitation: 12-30” Potential problem due to fire suppression Juniper Woodlands
Characterized by: Salty soils Cold temperatures Southern Idaho (Mountain Home area) Precipitation: <10” Excellent winter range due to high nutritive value Salt Desert Shrub
Characterized by: Andisols (volcanic ash, very fertile) Dense forest with open meadows Most of northern Idaho Precipitation: 40+ Excellent wildlife habitat and summer range Coniferous Forest and Mountain Meadows
