East Carpathian subalpine Fagus forests
Local Fagus sylvatica and Fagus sylvatica-Picea abies forests of the tree-limit in the upper montane or subalpine level of the high southern Carpathians, developed where subalpine Picea abies forests do not form an uninterrupted zone, less well individualised than more western formations of the Aceri-Fagion, though, like them, characterized by the admixture of Acer pseudoplatanus in the canopy and of Adenostyletalia megaphorb species in the understorey.
