Justification of Ecoregion Delineation
This tundra is comprised of the bare summits, plateau tops and gentle high altitude slopes of the Stanovii, Aldanskii, and Dzhudzhur Ranges. Mapped ecoregion boundaries correspond to montane tundra in Central Siberian, East Siberian and Okhotsk-Manchurian vegetation provinces (Kurnaev 1990).
