Temperate and Boreal Rainforest Relicts of Europe. DellaSala, D. A.; Alaback, P.; Drescher, A.; Holien, H.; Spribille, T.; and Ronnenberg, K. In Temperate and Boreal Rainforests of the World: Ecology and Conservation, pages 154–180. Island Press/Center for Resource Economics.
Temperate and Boreal Rainforest Relicts of Europe [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
European temperate rainforests are disjunctly distributed from ̃45° to 69°N latitude, where they are influenced by maritime climates (see figure 6-1). Storms originating in the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean (Balkans) provide for mild winters, cool summers, and adequate precipitation to sustain rainforests throughout the year. Due to extensive deforestation, however, today's European rainforests are mere fragments of primeval rainforests. A reminder of a bygone era when rainforests flourished, they are barely hanging on as contemporary rainforest relicts (see box 6-1).
