Euxine-Colchic broadleaf forests

WWF Abstract

The outstanding natural beauty of this region is matched only by its high level of biological richness. Lush valleys with moss covered trees and numerous fast-flowing streams characterize the north slopes of the Daglari Mountains in Turkey. This region, together with the swampy broadleaf forests of the Colchic lowland, can boast 130 endemic species of plants and animals. Many plant species are ancient relics, and are thought to be descendants of ancient boreal Tertiary period flora that once covered a large part of temperate Eurasia.
