Thermophilous Alpine and peri-Alpine mixed Tilia forests

Description (English)

Thermophilous forests of Tilia cordata, Tilia platyphyllos, Acer platanoides, Fraxinus excelsior, Ulmus glabra, Fagus sylvatica with Euonymus latifolius, Corylus avellana, most typical of the warm valleys of the Alpine system and some peripheral ranges, characterized by Asperula taurina, Cyclamen purpurascens and numerous transgressives of the Quercetalia pubescenti-petraeae. These remarkable relict forests are particularly characteristic of the föhn valleys of the Insubrian and northern Alps; they occur in similar situations in the Jura and the Hercynian ranges, north to the Harz.
