Central Anatolian deciduous forests

WWF Abstract

Birds such as avocets and cranes that migrate across Turkey find a welcome home in the Central Anatolian Deciduous Forests. Lakes and ponds dot the countryside, providing habitat and breeding grounds for waterfowl such as white pelicans. Throughout the high plateaus and mountains of this ecoregion, the rugged landscape is dappled with brilliant yellow patches of Turkey oak trees in the fall. Forests of European black pines and Cilician fir trees contain abundant animals, including the European marbeled polecat. High in the mountains, alpine meadows are home to the Turkish chamois.
