The region's climate has given Slovenia a wealth of diverse flora and fauna. Ferns, flowers, mosses, and common trees populate the landscape. There are subtropical plants along the Adriatic Sea. Wild animals include deer, brown bear, rabbit, fox, and wild boar. About half of Slovenia is mountainous; mainly, the mountains are located in the central and eastern part of the country. Farmers plant vineyards on the hillsides and raise livestock in the fertile lowlands of the country.
