Quick Reference

In contrast to the situation in Eurasia, North America once possessed great tracts of lowland coniferous forest to the south of the boreal conifer zone. They comprised several formations, namely the lake forest, Pacific Coast forest, and the pine barrens of the north-eastern and south-eastern USA. The lake forest has been all but destroyed.
