The World Heritage Committee put the Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathian, in Slovakia and the Ukraine, onto UNESCO's world heritage list on June 28 along with other six sites.
The Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathian, in Slovakia and the Ukraine, are ten sites representing an outstanding example of undisturbed, complex temperate forests and exhibit the most complete and comprehensive ecological patterns and processes of pure stands of European beech across a variety of environmental conditions, UNESCO wrote on its website. They contain an invaluable genetic reservoir of beech and many species associated with, and dependent on, these forest habitats.
