Carpathian Biosphere Reserve

The Carpathian Biosphere Reserve (CBR), with the total area of 57880 ha, represents nearly the whole landscape and biogeographical diversity of the Ukrainian part of the Eastern Carpathians. The reserve consists of six detached massifs and a regional landscape park "Stuzhytsa", botanical preserves of national significance "Chorna Hora" and "Yulivska Hora". The protected massifs are located at an altitude of 180-2061 m.a.s.l. in the western, central and eastern sectors of the Ukrainian Carpathians. Practically undisturbed by human activity foothill oak-groves; mountain beech, mixed and spruce forests; subalpine and alpine meadows, formed by pine-alder mossy forest and rocky-lichen landscapes are represented here. More than one thousand species of high vascular plants, 281 species of vertebrate animals, nearly 2200 species of invertebrates are protected in the reserve. 64 plant species and 72 animal species, which are entered into the Red Data Book of the IUCN and Ukraine (1994), and the European Red List (1991), are found here.
