Birds of the mountain range of the Low Tatra National Park, Brankov – Červená Ma- gura, the West Carpathians, 1984 - 1991
Between 1984 and 1991, the limestone hilly range of Brankov - Červená Magura contained a mosaic of habitats that maintained a rich bird fauna. The European silver fir and beech mixed forest harboured a high number of forest bird species. Above 1000 m, meadows and pastures contained fewer species with lower diversity. Forest edges yielded a higher diversity than that found in typical coniferous spruce forests. Forest edges and mountain meadows harboured a high number of species restricted to these habitat types.
