Description

Information

The Urho Kekkonen Nationalpark (Finland) and the Un-Njuvgoiv proposed protected area (Russia) form an entire trans-boundary natural state ecosystem surrounding the Saariselkä-fells on the Finnish-Russian boundary. It includes old-growth pine forests (dark brownish green), alpine (oroarctic) tundras (pink, magenta, and pinkish grey in the eastern part), and old growth spruce forests (dark green and dark grayish green) on the southern side of the fells forming the northern timberline of spruce in this area. Aapa-mires (light green and golden brown) and recovering formerly clear-cut (stripe method) forests are visible in the lower (southern) part of the image.
