Central European mixed forests

WWF Abstract

The Bialowieza Forest, located in this ecoregion, is known for its high level of plant diversity, a large number of endemic species, and the successful reintroduction of both European bison and beavers. Overhunting virtually eliminated the European bison and beaver from most parts of this ecoregion. European bison were reintroduced in 1929 into the Bialowieza National Park in Poland and Belarus. Their range now extends outside of the park boundaries with around 300 in Poland and 240 in Belarus.
