Forest ecoregions

The map shows the Forest Ecoregions. They differ in terms of climatic factors, forest vegetation and altitudinal vegetation belts. The southernmost tip of Ticino is considered to be similar to the Plateau region regarding climatological characteristics. The Forest Ecoregions were developed for "Sustainability and success monitoring in protection forests" (Frehner et al. 2005). Detailed information is available at https://www.gebirgswald.ch/de/nais-download.html In the regions "Northern intermediate Alps free from beech", "Continental Alps" and "Southern intermediate Alps" beech does not occur, in all other regions it occurs.
