Cantabrian mixed forests

WWF Abstract

The wild landscape of the Cantabrian Mountains once held deep forests of oak and pine. These forests were mixed with open areas of grasslands and scrub, as well as marshes and reed beds along the coast. Today, much of the wilderness has been replaced by cultivated fields, pastures, meadows, and orchards--which often provide the only remaining habitat for many species.
