This is a land of spectacular beauty, including montane pine forests, waterfalls, caves, craters, grottoes, and rocky beaches. An unusually high number of amphibians for this latitude can be found here, as well as many endemic mollusks and insects. This ecoregion is also rich in endemic plants--between 240 to 300 species can be found in the Crimean Mountains and the northwest flanks of the Caucasus.
