Yosemite national park.

GROUP PARTICIPANTS: Sara Cabezas Hernandez, Laura Anguita, Elena Gala, Iciar Martinez and Adriana Ortiz.
What type of ecosystem is Yosemite national park? Yosemite park is a taiga ecosystem that is also called the coniferous forest or boreal forest.


GEOGRAPFICAL LOCATION:  Yosemite National Park is located in the central Sierra Nevada of California. Three wilderness areas are adjacent to Yosemite: the Ansel Adams Wildernessto the southeast, the Hoover Wildernessto the northeast, and the Emigrant Wilderness to the north.

     GEOLOGY:  Yosemite is a classic example of a glaciated landscape, where glaciers have carved the smooth domes of Tuolumne Meadows. Granite, because of its durability and strength, preserves these bold forms. While glaciers have retreated from all but the highest peaks, Yosemite’s iconic cliffs continue to be shaped today by rockfall and other erosive processes.

CLIMATE : Yosemite has a Mediterranean climate, meaning most precipitation falls during the mild winter, and the other seasons are nearly dry.

Vegetation:  wooded area of oaks, low vegetation mountain, high mountain vegetation , subalpine vegetation and alpine vegetation.
