Many different types of animals live in the Mediterranean Shrubland Climate. Many small insects and reptiles inhabit the area due to the low shrubs that provide protection from the sun and their enemies. Some larger animals that are known in these areas are the jackal (a small wolf), goats, and wild boars. FUN FACT: This climate is usually known for its breeding of the famous bullfighting bulls!

There is one minor change that humans have caused among the mediterranean shrublands. Ever since humans have inhabited these areas, surrounding bodies of water have increased temperature. Studies have show that water temperatures in this climate have increased by 2 degrees celsius in past year. This is most likely caused by the pollution humans emit.

BiodiversityGrowing within the Mediterranean Shrublands is mainly shrubs and other low growing vegetation. The reason for shorter plants and shrubs is because they must be drought resistant, meaning that they need to be able to survive with scarce amounts of water, and the only plants that will survive those conditions are those that are closest to the ground water.

Cacti are a common plant among the Mediterranean Shrublands, due to their strong ability to save water for months.
