Cyprus Mediterranean forests

WWF Abstract

From high mountain ranges to low plains, the Cyprus Mediterranean Forests ecoregion includes a wide range of habitats on the island of Cyprus. Oak, strawberry, juniper, and cypress trees thrive at lower elevations. On the driest low plains in the center of the island, the shrub-like vegetation includes wild olives and carob trees. As you move higher into the mountains, pine forests provide an ideal habitat for many specialized species of plants and animals. And impressive mountain pine forests and juniper woodlands cover the mountain summits. Throughout the island, each mountain range hosts a number of plants and animals that are found nowhere else on Earth.
