Northern Anatolian conifer and deciduous forests

WWF Abstract

From wolves to woodpeckers, the diverse wildlife of the Northern Anatolian Conifer and Deciduous Forests ecoregion makes this one of the most important areas for nature conservation in Turkey. Birds migrate from both Asia and Europe to find shelter here in forests of pine, hornbeam, sweet chestnut, alder, and beech trees. Numerous types of ferns and herbs are among the 2,400 species of plants known to occur in this region. WhatÂ’s more, freshwater lakes and wetlands throughout the region are teeming with waterfowl and wading birds such as herons and egrets.
