Pyrenees conifer and mixed forests

WWF Abstract

Where in Europe can you still find brown bears and mountain goats roaming freely in the wilderness? Throughout the Pyrenees Conifer and Mixed Forests ecoregion there are steep rocky slopes, amazing canyons, high plains, and high summits of more than 9,800 feet (3,000 m) that remain as wild today as they were thousands of years ago. From oak forests at lower elevations to high-mountain forests of beech, silver fir, and mountain pine, the diverse habitats here are filled with life. With about 3,500 vascular plant species, 64 species of mammals, and hundreds of bird species, the Pyrenees are considered one of the most important hot spots for biodiversity in Europe.
