Arborescent matorral

English name: Arborescent matorral

Description (English)

Successional and plagioclimax evergreen sclerophyllous or lauriphyllous vegetation of mediterranean or warm-temperate humid affinities with a more or less dense, broken or low arborescent cover and with a usually thick, high evergreen shrub stratum. Arborescent matorral derives mostly from degradation or regrowth of broad-leaved evergreen forests (G2) or is intermediate between them and maquis (F5.2); some derives from thermophilous deciduous (G1.7) or conifer (G3.7) forests.
