Juniperus phoenicea forests

Description (English)

Juniperus phoenicea ssp. phoenicea and Juniperus phoenicea ssp. lycia forests of the Mediterranean and Saharo-Mediterranean regions. Exceptional, tall and dense formations, however, may be more appropriately characterised as woodland and listed in this unit. Mediterranean formations dominated by Juniperus phoenicea are scrubs, thickets or arborescent matorrals, listed under units F5.132, F6.15, F6.25, F6.35 or, in dunal formations, unit B1.632 (of EUNIS 2012) Saharo-Mediterranean formations may more often take the appearance of an open or steppe forest.
