Rodope montane mixed forests

WWF Abstract

In this ecoregionthe Rodope Mountain Mixed Forests, you could spend the day skiing snowy peaks, picnicking in a grassy mountain meadow, or enjoying the hot sun of the dry lowlands. This ecoregion follows the Rodope Mountain chain through Bulgaria and extends into Greece, Macedonia, and Yugoslavia. These montane forests have both broadleaf and coniferous trees in various combinations depending on altitude, latitude, soil, and climate. Habitats include alpine tundra-like meadows, pine forests, and mixed forests, along with riparian habitats. The rich variety of plants is why the ecoregion is considered a center of plant diversity and endemism.
