Balkan peninsula supra-Mediterranean shrub garrigues

Description (English)

Formations of the supra-Mediterranean level and sub-Mediterranean areas of the Balkan peninsula dominated by sclerophyllous shrubs, impoverished irradiations of the communities of units F5.22 and F6.2, in particular unit F6.21. Included are, notably, the Phillyrea latifolia and Quercus coccifera thickets or scrubs of the middle Struma-Strimon and Mesta-Nestos valleys of Bulgaria, when monodominated by these species, as well as some Buxus sempervirens- or Juniperus oxycedrus-dominated formations of the supra-Mediterranean Ostryo-Carpinion aegeicum region of northern Greece, southern Albania and the southern F.Y.R. of Macedonia; most of the communities that include them also comprise, however, a substantial admixture of deciduous species and thus belong to unit F5.3.
