Iberian conifer forests

WWF Abstract

Thousands of plant species fill the Iberian Mountain Conifer and Broadleaf Mixed Forests ecoregion, many of which are endemic. In fact, the mountains of this ecoregion are the richest center of endemic species in Europe and contain about half of all Spain’s known plants, both endemic and non-endemic. This ecoregion is also notable for its diversity of endangered and/or endemic species of reptiles, insects, mammals, and birds.
