Western acidic garrigue
Sub-shrub vegetation dominated by nanophanerophytes on thin acidic soils, both hard silicate and soft sands, through the western thermo- to lower supramediterranean 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 or abandonment of farm fields and is much affected by grazing and fire.
