Subalpine and montane Pinus uncinata forests (*if on gypsum or limestone)
Mountain pine (Pinus uncinata) forests, usually open and with a very developed shrubby understory, of the subalpine and montane levels; on limestone, gypsum or siliceous substrate in a cool or thermophile situation depending on the region. Sometimes mixed with Pinus sylvestris, more rarely with Larix-Pinus cembra.
Notes on habitat mapping
Crooked (low-growing) pine stands belong to the habitat type 4070, on bog soils to the habitat type 91D0. Dominant stands with Scots pine may have similar herbaceous vegetation, but do not belong to the this habitat type.
