Jump to: navigation, search

The Inner North Coast Ranges occur along the east slope of the outer Northern California Coast Ranges. The term inner is a reference to the greater distances of the mountain ranges from the Pacific Ocean, compared to the outer ranges that are nearer to that ocean, and often larger.

Geography[edit]

The inner ranges of mountains and hills run from near Anderson, California at south end of the High North Coast Ranges, southwards to west of the Russian River.

Ecology[edit]

Willis Linn Jepson was one of the first to describe the flora of the Inner North Coast Ranges. Jepson noted the presence of Yellow Pine (Pinus ponderosa ) and Sugar Pine (Pinus lambertiana ) species.[1]
