Almost the entire area of the Tadami Biosphere Reserve is a mountainous zone approximately 1,500m above sea level (maximum altitude 1,819.9m, minimum 350m), excluding the basins of the Tadami River and its tributary (the Ina River). Steep massifs are found in the southern and western parts while the northern mountains have slopes shaved off by avalanches and exposed bedrocks. In this complicated topography, “mosaic vegetation” is formed, where plant communities grow by adapting to each habitat environment. With the Tadami Biosphere Reserve belonging to the Japan Sea area climate, it subsequently assumes a humid subtropical climate.
