In addition to the old-growth coniferous forest (Tongass National Forest) and surrounding ocean environment, the Alexander Archipelago is comprised of freshwater lakes, ponds, streams, marshes, wet meadows, muskeg, subalpine meadows, salt marsh, and rocky intertidal zones each with unique plant and animal communities.
