Fagus sylvatica forests of sub-Atlantic Western and Central Europe, north to Denmark, southern Norway, southern Sweden and Poland, developed on a more or less deep layer of brown loess-loam, less rich in calciphile plants and richer in acid- and drought-tolerant species; Melica uniflora (in northern formations) and Galium odoratum are usually well represented.
