S33 Lowland to montane temperate and submediterranean genistoid scrub

new search

Low scrub dominated by various woody legumes on mostly sharply-draining, nutrient-poor acidic soils throughout the temperate and submediterranean lowlands and Mediterranean foothills of Europe. To the north the vegetation is usually found in successions or ecotones within pastoral landscapes and is often rather species-poor; further south, the scrub can occur as a more persistent or repeatedly renewed habitat among rocky or unstable hill-slopes with richer associated floras.
