At lower elevations, the gradient from cool temperate rainforest to tall eucalypt forest includes a 'mixed' ecotone of cool temperate mixed forest.
Cool temperate rainforest and cool temperate mixed forest, on the other hand, will receive between 28 and 30% (on average) less than their minimum annual rainfall requirement (Fig.
2011), and one of the largest areas of cool temperate rainforest and cool temperate mixed forest occurs in this region.

Regional differences between the HadCM2 results for MAPSS and BIOME3 were due to the greater expansion of the temperate mixed forest into Canada's western provinces and territories.
The temperate mixed forest was the most highly represented biome in the conservation land network under current climatic conditions and, with the exception of the GFDL model, remained the most highly represented biome in Canada's network of protected areas under the MAPSS scenarios.
