The Nature of New Hampshire

Sperduto DD

NATURAL COMMUNITIES are recurring assemblages of plants and animals found in particular physical environments. New Hampshire is a mosaic of natural communities, encompassing habitats as varied as alpine meadows, riverbanks, forests, tidal marshes, ponds, and cliffs. Communities range from common and widespread types that cover hundreds or thousands of acres across broad areas of the state, to uncommon or rare types that are small and restricted to a specific part of the state, such as the White Mountains or Seacoast region.
