Where are the black forests?

Where are the black forests? Black forests (another name - mangrove) are typical for tropics and subtropics all over the planet. Usually they are located in tidal zones or in coastal shallow water. They consist of mangroves, the roots of which are located in the sea waters. On the shores of Southeast Asia can be found the most developed mangrove forests. In addition, there are two famous black forests. The first is in Germany, in the southwest. It is called Black Forest, which means "black forest". And it is named so because the trees in it grow very closely to each other, so there is very little sunlight in the forest. This forest is 200 km long and 60 km wide. The second black forest is located in Ukraine, in the Alexandria and Znamensky districts of the Kirovograd region. This is a hornbeam-oak forest, its area is about 3,500 hectares. Tree species - common hornbeam and pedunculate oak. Here you can find rare plants for Ukraine - Parva sedge, graceful weaver, Besser aconite and relic euonymus.
