Sarmatic mixed forests

WWF Abstract

This is a large region of rich and diverse plant life. Abundant water is found in over 10,000 lakes and about 20,000 rivers. Primeval forests, meadows, and wetlands can be seen in their original state. Much of this ecoregion has fallen prey to human conversion to agriculture, especially in former Communist countries, however large areas of forest remain intact. Along the coasts can be found rocky shores, fjords, cliffs, and glacial valleys. Inland areas are more extensive and contain mixed forests of deciduous and conifer species.
