Transcript

  • 1. MEDITERRANEAN SCRUBLAND FLORA & FAUNA
  • 2. • This biome actually goes by several names. It is found surrounding large parts of the Mediterranean Sea and is thus sometimes called the Mediterranean Biome, others call it a Woodland Biome, while others call it a Shrub or Chaparral Biome. The shrublands are known locally as maquis or matorral. • This biome is shaped by a Mediterranean climate of mild, wet winters and hot dry summers.
  • 3. • The Mediterranean biome is characterized by shrubs. Most are evergreen and have small, leathery leaves with thick cuticles. Sometimes the leaves are so reduced as to appear needle-like. • Many typical members of the shrub flora are aromatic (for example, sage, rosemary, thyme, and oregano) and contain highly flammable oils.
