Biogeographical synthesis of Andalusia (southern Spain)
Abstract:Andalusia is a large territory of almost 90,000 km2 in the south of Spain. The marked heterogeneity of its orographic, lithological and climatic features affords its plants and vegetation a high degree of biodiversity. A biogeographical classification for Andalusia is proposed, based on studies of the physical environment, bioclimatic and analysis of the endemic taxa, series and plant communities found in the territory.
