Eastern Balkan Range oriental Fagus forests

Description (English)

Beech forests of the eastern Balkan Range dominated by Fagus orientalis and with an understorey formed in part by a Euxinian cortège, impoverished in comparison to that of more southern and eastern communities, though fairly similar to that of unit G1.6E2, comprising, as most characteristic taxa, Primula vulgaris ssp. sibthorpii (Primula rosea, Primula sibthorpii), Trachystemon orientalis and Scilla bithynica and the absence of other southern Euxinian elements that occur in the Stranja.
