evergreen oak, coniferous forests, leopards, lynx, Bamboo

Mixed deciduous and coniferous forests cover about three-quarters of the land, but they have been thinned for use as fuel. Principal species include pine, maple, elm, poplar, fir, and aspen. Bamboo, laurel, and evergreen oak are found in the mild southern coastal areas. Large mammals, such as tigers, leopards, bears, and lynx, used to be common throughout the Korea Peninsula, but these animals have virtually disappeared from South Korea due to deforestation and poaching.
