Canarian Phoenix groves
Sparse Phoenix canariensis groves (palmares) of colluvial deposits, mostly on flat midslope sites or at the base of irregular temporary streams. Endemic to the Canary Islands, they are dependent on brief, temporary water-tables present in sporadic torrential flows during the winter. Thus, they are azonal in the dry to arid bioclimatic belts of the infra-thermomediterranean where the zonal
vegetation is F8.1 Canary Island xerophytic scrub.
