    The South Central Rockies forests is a temperate coniferous forest ecoregion of the United States located mainly in Wyoming, Idaho, and has a considerably drier climate than the Biome: Temperate coniferous forest. The Utah-Wyoming Rocky Mountains Ecoregion includes the mountains four states, and includes the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE), considered one of the last intact temperate ecosystems on Earth, and the farthest south in North America. Yellowstone is an extraordinary place containing the greatest concentration of geysers, hot springs, and other thermal features in the world.

Aspen is therefore unstable across much of its current range in the Rocky Mountains, especially at the margins of its southern range, at a relatively lower elevation, and on southern aspects with more xeric hotter sites [8,24,31]. Aspen stands are most likely to be maintained on mesic sites, at mid-elevation, and on northern by: 1.

Cutting regimes in the Rocky Mountains have varied from large clearcuts that are often densely spaced in moist forests (e.g., spruce/fir and cedar/hemlock forests) to repeated entries of selective cutting in drier forests (e.g., ponderosa pine, western larch, or Douglas fir forests) (Arno, personal communication).Cited by: In one easy-to-carry volume, this comprehensive field guide includes plants and wildlife it would otherwise take ten field guides to cover - all the flora and fauna you're most likely to see in the forest communities of the Rocky Mountains and the Southwest.

Lodgepole pine forests interspersed with stands of quaking aspens are fire-resilient forests that dominate the central and north-central Rocky Mountains. Usually found between 2, and 3, metres (8, ft) in Colorado, lodgepole pines and aspens grow rapidly after fire in mostly even-aged stands.
