Olea europaea - Ceratonia siliqua woodland

English name: Olive - carob woodland

Description (English)

Thermo-Mediterranean or thermo-Canarian woodland dominated by arborescent Olea europaea var. sylvestris, Ceratonia siliqua, Pistacia lentiscus, Myrtus communis or, in the Canary Islands, by Olea europaea ssp. cerasiformis and Pistacia atlantica. Most formations will be listed as arborescent matorral F5.1, but a few stands have a sufficiently tall, closed canopy to qualify for this unit.
