Grasslands in Andalusia (herbaceous ecosystems)
Contrasts: peaceful green and flowery landscapes – competition between plant species ; summer water stress.
Grasslands in Andalusia, meadows rich in flowering plants.
Herbaceous vegetation is maintained thanks to the action of domestic and wild herbivorous animals.
The spring following the massive 2017 Doñana fire saw an extraordinary amount of plants blooming that had previously been ‘smothered’ by the dense bushes of the pine forests. Incredible sight of a flowered cloak amidst the devastation.
