Abstract

A review is given of the origin, history, and use of the terms subarctic and subalpine. It is suggested that North American scientists join in the European trend towards a standardization of the nomenclature for latitudinal zones and altitudinal belts. The subarctic zone and the subalpine belt are redefined as covering the forest-tundra ecotone at high latitudes and high altitudes respectively.
