Pannonian mixed forests

WWF Abstract

This ecoregion is a vast depression surrounded by three major mountain chains: the Carpathian Mountains, Alps, and Dinarid Mountains. These cause a major rain shadow that allows very little precipitation to reach the center of this ecoregion. The region has numerous rivers, streams, and lakes and hosts people of many cultures--including Austrians, Croatians, Hungarians, and Ukrainians. Even though the area is heavily populated, large fragments of habitat remain intact.
