Isle Royale National Park, MI
This park consists of the largest island and associated islets in Lake Superior. A transition from temperate maple and yellow birch forest to boreal spruce-fir forest is present. Internationally known studies of wolf-moose dynamics and moose-vegetation interactions have taken place for the last 40 years.
