Ecoregions Level II

I think we’re ready for the next level in ecoregions.  In this case, it’s level II.

Here is a link to the PDF map. It’s still a little hard to read online, but we’ve clearly left the elementary version of ecoregions and are starting to get into a little more detail.

The GPT passes through at least five ecoregions at this level including, from south to north) Upper Gila Mountains, Warm Deserts, South-Central Semi Arid Prairies, West-Central Semi Arid Prairies, Western Cordillera, and if it ends in North Dakota, it would pass through the Temperate Prairies as well.
