Trees of Europe

Forests are complex ecosystems that support tremendous biological diversity. Previously, forests occupied from 80 to 90% of the area of ​​Europe and a large number of animals and plants were associated with them in one way or another. Human activities have significantly influenced the forest cover of Europe, but about 50% of the forests are still preserved. Almost 25% of forests remain untouched and are located in northern and eastern parts of Europe, as well as in Russia. The following types of forests are represented in Europe:

Temperate broadleaf and mixed forests are found throughout most of Europe, with the exception of southern and northern parts. The most common tree species found in these forests are as follows. Oak is one of the most common trees in the Northern Hemisphere. There are about 20 species in Europe. Beech trees are also one of the most common temperate trees in Europe and are the dominant vegetation in mixed forests. Ash is widespread throughout most of Europe. This genus of flowering trees of medium to large size has 45-65 species, mainly deciduous. Birch is distributed throughout the continent, as well as the entire Northern Hemisphere. Birch is closely related to beech and oak. Other common trees in deciduous and mixed forests are: hornbeam, linden, elm, spruce, pine, chestnut, sedge, etc. The distribution of certain tree species depends on the type of soil and microclimate.

Fauna of Europe

At one time, Europe was home to a wide variety of animals such as deer, elk, bison, wild boars, wolves and bears. Since the population occupies most of Europe, and its actions have a bad effect on the animal world, many species have significantly decreased, or have completely disappeared from this territory. Today, deer, moose, wolves and bears can be seen in large numbers only in the north of Scandinavia and Russia, as well as on the Balkan Peninsula. Elsewhere, they exist mainly in protected areas.

Europe is still inhabited by many small animals such as weasel, ferret, otter, marten, ermine, hare, rabbit, hedgehog, lemming, squirrel. A large number of birds of the indigenous peoples of Europe include the eagle, falcon, finch, nightingale, owl, pigeon, sparrow and thrush. Like any part of the world, Europe has several main natural and climatic zones, which are inherent in certain types of animals.

Mixed and deciduous forest zone

The deciduous trees in this zone stretch from northwestern Spain to the British Isles and southern Norway, and to the western foothills of the Urals in the east. This vast territory is the home of wild boars, deer and minks, hedgehogs, squirrels, shrews, roe deer, foxes, badgers, ferrets, weasels. The musk ox is found in Norway, and the bison is found in Poland and Belarus.

The musk ox from the family of bovids has a dense black-brown hairline, reaching up to 90 cm in length in the chest and back of the body. The body is 2.5 m long and weighs up to 300 kg. The musk ox is a herd animal, it feeds on lichens, mosses, and grass. When wolves attack, they take up a perimeter defense - calves are placed in the center, and adults reflect attacks.

The largest land animal of the European fauna is, of course, the bison. An adult can reach a mass of up to a ton and a height of up to 2 m. Despite its size, the bison runs fast and confidently overcomes the steep slopes of mountain gorges. The female bison with the baby is always on guard. Noticing a person, she instantly rushes in his direction, trying to scare him. But, without reaching a few meters, he always stops abruptly and quickly returns to the baby.

Climate

Icelandic and Siberian minima determine the movement of air over the territory of Europe in winter. The Baltic and Mediterranean regions, the northern part of the British Isles and the southern part of the Scandinavian Peninsula were affected by polar cyclones in January. Across Europe, winter temperatures are positive as the air from the sea brings warmth. In winter it rains mostly. Exceptions are Scandinavia and Eastern Europe, where the temperature is below zero and heavy snowfall.

In summer, Siberian and Icelandic cyclones are significantly weak. The temperature in summer depends on the amount of sun and latitude, but the average temperature varies from north to north from +15°C to +25°C. The air becomes drier and rainfall decreases when moving from west to east in Europe. Europe belongs to the zone of moderate humidity, although there is excessive rainfall on some coasts.
