It looks like a bunch of finish nails holding it up although they may have put a bead of construction adhesive behind the wood too.  I would start with a stiff putty knife about 2" wide.  You can use another putty knife or thin scrap of wood to protect drywall as you pry.  You may also have to use a larger pry bar like a Stanley WonderBar to get the wood off completely.

Hi sobervash,

I like Adam's visual demonstration.

I published this video to demo several different tools for removing carpet tack strips from Terrazzo tile ... the steps are very similar to your project.

Have a look!
