Sardinian cork-oak forests

Description (English)

Extensive, widespread and varied forests of Sardinia, extending from sea level to about 900 m in non-calcareous mountains. Quercus suber is sometimes associated with Quercus ilex or Quercus pubescens. These forests include luxuriant, fully developed, mature formations, by far the best-preserved cork-oak forests in the central Mediterranean basin.
