Illyrian deciduous forests

WWF Abstract

The valleys and plains of this ecoregion extend along the coast of an ancient land known as Illyria, which includes the western part of the Balkan Peninsula. Today, this is a populated countryside that is subject to political and military strife. Native vegetation exists in fragments. Despite these challenges, however, a rich variety of plants and animals manage to survive.
