Forestry and Agrifoods
The Eagle River Plateau comprises most of this ecoregion. This upland plateau is composed of extensive string bogs with numerous open pools surrounded by fen vegetation. Bog hummocks are dominated by scrub spruce, Labrador tea, and feathermoss. The peatland expanses are occasionally interrupted by only a few conspicuous eskers, which support open, lichen woodland. Alder thickets are common along river banks.
