Alpine Meadows

 

high-mountain meadows with low grasses. They are common in the Alps, the Caucasus, the Tien-Shan, Kamchatka, and other high-mountain regions that have a lot of snowfall. Alpine meadows have a dense carpet of short grass and abound in brightly colored flowering plants. According to the types of grasses that predominate, there are herbaceous, sedge, cobresia, and mixed-grass meadows. Alpine meadows are good summer pastures. Certain low-grass meadows of various islands in the temperate and subarctic zones (the Aleutian Islands and Iceland) are called alpine meadows.
