MediterraneanVegetation. A. Life forms. The Mediterranean vegetation is dominated by evergreen shrubs and sclerophyllous trees adapted to the distinctive climatic regime of summer drought and cool moist winters with only sporadic frost.

    climate types occur in close proximity. Here, the Desert, Cool Interior, Highland, and Steppe climates border a smaller region of Mediterranean climate. Perhaps the only other place like California is central Chile, where this convergence is made even more extreme by the dramatic Andean topography. As climates go, the Mediterranean climate is rare. the California Vegetation Classification (Sawyer and Keeler-Wolf ms). Purpose of Mapping The purpose of mapping vegetation goes beyond cataloging and identifying all the vegetation types in an area. The pur-pose of a map is to graphically display the location of the different vegetation types and emphasize their spatial rela-tionships.

      Mediterranean plants thrive in moderate climates with dry, hot summers and wet, mild winters. California, South Africa, Chile and Australia all offer Mediterranean climates. Most Mediterranean plants prefer fully sunny locations with dryer soil conditions. Gardeners wishing to plant Mediterranean trees, shrubs and. Plants in turn exert some degree of influence on climate. Both climate and vegetation profoundly affect soil development and the animals that live in an area. Here we examine some ways in which climate and vegetation interact. More emphasis is given to terrestrial ecosystems than to aquatic ones, although some aquatic analogues are briefly noted.

Mediterranean vegetation, any scrubby, dense vegetation composed of broad-leaved evergreen shrubs, bushes, and small trees usually less than m (about 8 feet) tall and growing in regions lying between 30° and 40° north and south latitudes.

These regions have a climate similar to that of the Mediterranean area, which is characterized by hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters.

This manual was designed as an “evolving sys-tem” that would recognize rare or unrecognized vegetation types as well as refining categories into more specific plant associations and.

Therefore soil moisture and growth conditions for plants with summer activity are quite different in both environments. This is clearly reflected in the coastal fog-belt redwoods and perennial grass-lands, which cannot be considered mediterranean vegetation types and are actually included in the Oregonian province.

These differences in winter. The vegetation types usually considered as ‘typically Mediterranean’ are the evergreen and sclerophyllous shrublands or heathlands, named maquis and garrigue in the Mediterranean Basin, chaparral in California, matorral in Chile, fynbos in SW Africa, kwongan and mallee in SW Australia.
