Mediterranean woodlands and forests

WWF Abstract

The Mediterranean Woodland and Forest runs through Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia, lining the Mediterranean coast and facing the European shore. The low-lying coastal plain turns to rugged hills further inland, and then surrounds but does not include the Atlas Mountains. Summers are hot and dry here, with mild and humid winters. Offshore currents further alter climate, and combine with varied landforms and geology to result in an amazing variety of forest types. Dry pine forests mix holm oaks and junipers, cork oak forests grow along the coastal plains, and wild olive and carob woodlands grow in short scrubby vegetation.
