new search

Low, mostly evergreen sclerophyllous scrub on diverse soils occurring through the Eastern Mediterranean meso-, thermo- and occasionally supramediterranean belts, including the regions around the southern seaboards of the Black Sea. The habitat is derived from forest degradation and usually maintained by grazing and fire. Vegetation structure and composition vary greatly with local climate and human impacts.
