Flora and fauna in Europe

The vegetation of Europe was finally formed after the Quaternary glaciation. Historically, the vegetation has undergone major changes under the influence of human activity. In many areas, cultivated plants are almost completely displacing wild ones. Europe is home to many cultivated plants. The Arctic desert area covers the islands of the Arctic Ocean. It lacks trees and shrubs, lichens and mosses predominate. The tundra zone covers the northernmost parts of the Russian plain, the Kola and Scandinavian peninsulas and the coast of the island. Iceland. Shrubs, mosses, lichens, marsh vegetation predominate.

To the south is the forest tundra subzone. In the temperate latitudes of Europe is the forest area, which is divided into the following subzones: taiga, mixed forests, deciduous forests, forest-steppe, steppe, semi-deserts. The taiga subzone extends, for example, south of the 57-60th parallel. In the taiga grows mainly European fir and pine, Siberian fir and larch, and in the mountains there is mountain tundra and birch. The subzone of mixed forests covers the northern part of Great Britain, southern Scandinavia, the North German and Russian plains and extends south to 52-54 north latitude. It is characterized by forests of oak, linden, maple, ash, beech, fir and pine.

The subzone of deciduous forests is best developed in Western and Central Europe, incl. and in the northern part of the Balkan Peninsula. Beech and oak forests predominate, and there is also a little linden. clear maple, hornbeam, chestnut. The forest-steppe subzone is developed in the southern part of the Russian Plain and the Middle Danube Lowland. In the south, the forest-steppes alternate with the steppes, in which grassy areas predominate. The steppes are best represented in the South. Ukraine and the Volga region, and a narrow steppe strip extends through the north-west. Black Sea coast to Bulgaria. The semi-desert subzone occupies a small area in the southeastern part of the Volga region. Drought-loving shrubs and some steppe grass species predominate. In the Mediterranean area there are forests of different species of oak and coniferous, as well as evergreen shrubs(maquis, gariga, frigana). There are low-stemmed palm trees in the southeastern part of the Iberian Peninsula.

In zoogeographical terms, Europe belongs to the Holarctic(Palearctic) zoogeographical area. Human activity(deforestation, plowing of celery, hunting, etc.) has caused changes in the composition and distribution of wild animals, and in some places until their extinction. Polar fox and partridge are common in the tundra and forest tundra, and seagulls, gulls and seals are found in the coastal areas. The forest area is characterized by moose, wild boar, fox, wolf, brown bear, wild cat, hedgehog, rabbit, squirrel, red deer, and many birds. Rodents and ungulates(rabbits, partridges, partridges, etc.) predominate in the steppes and forest-steppes. In the Mediterranean area there are wild goats(Alpine and Pyrenean), mouflon, many birds, reptiles and more. In the area of ​​Gibraltar lives the only species of monkey in Europe - the tailless macaque.

Climate

Most of Europe stretches in temperate latitudes, with only the southernmost and northernmost parts of the subtropics and north of the Arctic Circle. The influence of the Atlantic Ocean is intensified by the warm Gulf Stream and the strong ruggedness of Europe's coastline. Of great importance is the location of mountain systems that do not interfere with the movement of air masses from west to east. Cyclonic activity in summer slows down the temperature(the average temperatures of the warmest month are around 28°C), and in winter it increases(the average temperatures of the coldest month are 12°C and -20°C, respectively). In much of Europe, enough rainfall falls, but it is unevenly distributed.

While in Western Europe precipitation is in excess(Scandinavia and Great Britain have precipitation of more than 2000mm), Eastern Europe has insufficient precipitation (the Caspian lowland, for example, has precipitation of 100-500mm). The most common in Europe is the temperate climate. The western regions are characterized by a temperate maritime climate (with small annual temperature amplitudes, mild winters and moderately warm summers), and the eastern regions have a temperate continental climate(with significant temperature amplitudes, cold winters, warm and in some places hot summers). In the subtropical belt of Europe there is a Mediterranean type of climate(with hot dry summers and mild humid winters).
