Pindus Mountains mixed forests

WWF Abstract

In this ecoregion, towering, old growth forests of pines and firs survive at the highest reaches of the mountains, while in the valleys and deep canyons a wide variety of oak trees dominate. In some areas of this ecoregion, more than 35 percent of the plants are endemic. The diverse forests of this ecoregion host an amazing diversity of birds, including large breeding colonies of pelicans and egrets. From birds to bears to butterflies, the wildlife of this ecoregion is as varied as the landscape.
