Italian supra-Mediterranean garrigues
Characteristically supra-Mediterranean garrigues of Italy and the large central Mediterranean islands. In the supra-Mediterranean level of Italy and the large central Mediterranean islands, the substitution stages of the thermophile deciduous forests are mostly grasslands or shrubby grasslands, hedgehog heaths, deciduous shrubs, semimaquis or occasionally embryonic garrigues that differ little from those of the mesomediterranean level. A few formations, in particular with labiates of genera Thymus, Teucrium, Salvia, Lavandula and others, with Helichrysum spp. or with Euphorbia spp., may warrant separate listing under this heading.
