Southwest Iberian Mediterranean sclerophyllous and mixed forests

WWF Abstract

This ecoregion is about as complex as its name. The Southwest Iberian Mediterranean Sclerophyllous and Mixed Forests ecoregion is filled with an amazing diversity of habitats. One of these habitats is the evergreen oak woodlands, which contains the most extensive Iberian cork oak forests in the Mediterranean region. Diverse shrublands harbor endemic species of rock rose, lavender, broom, thyme, and other plants. Coastal lagoons and river mouths are important wintering sites for flamingoes and other migratory birds.
