Supra-Mediterranean garrigues

English name: Supra-Mediterranean garrigues

Description (English)

Low shrub formations with pronounced Mediterranean affinities formed as a degradation stage of thermophilous deciduous woodland (G1.7) or sometimes of evergreen Quercus woodland (G2.1) in the supra-Mediterranean belt of the Mediterranean region. Included here are only those formations that are characteristic of the supra-Mediterranean level; formations, particularly of the lower supra-Mediterranean, that are closely related to meso-Mediterranean communities have been included under F6.1, F6.2, F6.3 or F6.4.
