Ethiopian montane moorlands

WWF Abstract

The Ethiopian Montane Moorland covers the highest parts of the Ethiopian highlands, between 11,000 and 15,000 feet (3,300-4,500 m). Moorland, grasslands, and herb meadows are the dominant habitats of the region. During the last ice age this area was covered in glaciers. Only within the last few thousand years did the ice finally retreat, allowing vegetation to colonize the peaks.
