Mountain Grasslands in Russia

Scattered throughout Russia are areas of lush, mountainous grasslands. They appear at heights of 3,000 to 4,500 feet (914 to 1,372 meters). From 4,500 feet to 6,000 feet (1,372 to 1,829 meters), these mountain grasslands change with elevation. First, they give way to subalpine vegetation. Then, belts of moss and lichens appear. Finally, only bare outcrops of rock occur. Temperature, moisture, bedrock, relief, and wind determine altitudinal vegetation zones on mountains.
