Peri-Alpine hazel thickets
Thickets of the Jura, the pre-Alps, the southern German Hercynian ranges and the inner Alps, dominated by Corylus avellana, with Clematis vitalba and Cornus sanguinea, of particular bio-historical significance as a possible model of the hazel-dominated communities of the Boreal era.
