new search

Coniferous, in part deciduous, forest of European larch (Larix decidua) or Arolla pine (Pinus cembra) in the middle subalpine belt of temperate mountains in the central Alps and Carpathians with long but shallow snow-lie and a short growing season. Dwarf mountain pine (Pinus mugo), spruce (Picea abies), silver fir (Abies alba), rhododendrons and other sub-shrubs are never more than subordinate, but various whitebeam (Sorbus) species are characteristic associates.
