Celtis australis forests

Description (English)

Thermophilous woods dominated by, or rich in, Celtis australis. Forests dominated by Celtis australis may have been an important component of Mediterranean woodland, in particular in North Africa, but appear to have been destroyed almost everywhere and to be represented only by individual trees and small stands.
