Conserving Mediterranean shrubland and woodland ecoregion

Protecting Mediterranean woodlands and forests
Conserving Mediterranean forests, woodlands, and scrub communities

Mediterranean shrublands and woodlands occur in five parts of the world. The biome reaches its maximum extent in the Mediterranean proper - around the Mediterranean sea in Europe, North Africa, and Asia Minor and penetrating deeply into the Old World land masses. Much of the formation is considered a subclimax developed on degraded and eroded soils and maintained in part by fire and goats. It is from this region that many culinary herbs associated with Italian cuisine originate.
