The Hudsonian and Canadian zones range in elevation from 2, to 3, m (8, to 12, ft) and are forested with mainly englemann spruce, alpine fir, and corkbark fir at the higher end and Douglas fir, white fir, and limber pine at the lower end. Intermingled within these zones are large expanses of aspen that turn brilliant yellow in.

South Korea is conventionally divided into three main regions: a dominant northwest (greater Seoul); a prosperous, conservative, and politically favored southeast; and an underdeveloped, disgruntled, and left-leaning southwest.

Recent economic data, however, reveals more complicated geographical patterns. South Korea’s economic advance over the past few decades has evidently. Grassland, area in which the vegetation is dominated by a nearly continuous cover of grasses.
