1133 DE/UA - Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and the Ancient Beech Forests of Germany (2007)

Brief Description

"The Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathian, an outstanding example of undisturbed, complex temperate forests, constitute a transnational serial property of ten separate components along a 185 km axis from the Rakhiv Mountains and the Chornohirskyi Range in Ukraine, west along the Polonynian Ridge, to the Bukovské Vrchy and Vihorlat Mountains in Slovakia. They contain an invaluable genetic reservoir of beech and many species associated with, and dependent on, these forest habitats. They are also an outstanding example of the recolonization and development of terrestrial ecosystems and communities after the last Ice Age, a process which is still ongoing.

The Ancient Beech Forests of Germany, represent examples of on-going post-glacial biological and ecological evolution of terrestrial ecosystems and are indispensable to understanding the spread of the beech in the Northern Hemisphere across a variety of environments. The new inscription represents the addition of five forests totaling 4,391 hectares that are added to the 29,278 hectares of Slovakian and Ukranian beech forests inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2007. The tri-national property is now to be known as the Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and the Ancient Beech Forests of Germany (Slovakia, Ukraine, Germany)."

" 喀尔巴阡山脉原始山毛榉林,由10个跨国的连续遗产组成,沿185公里的轴线,从乌克兰拉希夫山脉和 Chornohirskyi西沿Polonynian山脊,一直到斯洛伐克的Bukovské Vrchy和Vihorlat山脉。这10个遗址是原始的、多元的温带森林的突出例子,展示了最完整、最广泛的生态模式和纯粹的欧洲山毛榉群丛在各种环境 条件下的生长过程。它们包含着宝贵的山毛榉基因库和与这些森林栖息地相关并依赖其生存的许多生物。它们还是上一个冰河时代后陆地生态系统和群落再移植和发 展的突出例子。"
