Eastern Quercus coccifera garrigues
Shrub communities of the eastern Ionian, Aegean and eastern Mediterranean coastlands and hinterland, usually relatively closed and tall, dominated by Quercus coccifera with no, or little, Pistacia lentiscus or other thermo-mediterranean shrubs; kermes oak garrigues are by far the most widespread xerophyllous shrub formations in the eastern meso-mediterranean zone. They are also well represented in the supra-Mediterranean and thermo-Mediterranean zones. Formations pertaining to the latter, when rich in other, more restrictively thermophile shrubs, have been listed as unit F5.5173.
