Western basiphilous garrigue

Description (English)

Sub-shrub vegetation dominated by nanophanerophytes and chamaephytes on thin, base-rich soils through the western thermo- to mesomediterranean belts, very diverse in composition with differences in local climate and soils. In rockier situations, it can be a permanent coloniser but is often derived from forest clearance and is much affected by grazing and fire.
