Central Korean deciduous forests

WWF Abstract

Hardwood forests of maples, oaks, and hornbeams once grew widely across the Central Korean Peninsula before the area was developed for agriculture and other human uses. Today most of these forests remain on mountains and hills, supporting a variety of forest birds and mammals, including fairy pittas, ring-necked pheasants, badgers, weasels, and martens.
