As a transitional zone between the Eurosiberian and the Mediterranean regions of Europe, the Cantabric mixed forests montane system is rich in floral and faunal diversity. A wide range of forest types is represented, including some old-growth forest. Of about 2000 vascular plant species, 10 to 20% are endemic. Large carnivores such as brown bear and wolf have persisted here along with several rare birds including the capercaillie, griffon vulture, and black woodpecker. Large herbivores such as the endemic Cantabrian chamois are numerous. Historically, traditional cattle raising had transformed large reaches of these forests to pastureland. Now, however, it is road construction and forest fragmentation that threaten the remaining populations of large mammals and their habitat.
