Carpathian montane forests

WWF Abstract

Central Europe is dominated by the Carpathian Mountains--an extension of the Alps--which form a long 62-mile (100 km) wide arc across the region, stretching from Poland to Ukraine and Romania. Mountain pastures and forests of dwarf pine, elm, and spruce help define this ecoregion. The dominant geographical feature in this ecoregion are the Tatras, the highest mountain range of the Carpathians.
