Temperate evergreen forest - Ecosystem

Many parts of the world have a mediterranean type of climate which is characterised by warm, dry summers and cool, moist winters. These are commonly inhabitated by low evergreen trees having broad leaves.

In woodland, trees are essentially lacking although shrubs may range up to 3-4m in height. Fire is an important hazardous factor in this 'ecosystem and the adaptation of the plants enable them to regenerate quickly after being burnt. The characteristic animals of temperate evergreen woodland chaparral are mule, deer, brush rabbit, wood rat, chipmunk, lizard, etc.
