Ecological Landscapes are used in Wisconsin to differentiate regions across the state. Ecological Landscapes are areas of Wisconsin that differ from each other in ecological attributes and management opportunities. They have unique combinations of physical and biological characteristics that make up the ecosystem, such as climate, geology, soils, water, or vegetation. They differ in levels of biological productivity, habitat suitability for wildlife, presence of rare species and natural communities, and in many other ways that affect land use and management.
Please refer to the WDNR's Ecological Landscapes of Wisconsin website for information on specific landscapes.
