Israel offers a wealth of plant life. Israel boasts a total of approximately 2,380 kinds of flora, including many varieties found only in Israel. The largest concentration of plant life can be found in the Mediterranean region, mostly in the forms of thicket and undergrowth. The mountainous regions have only a few impressive remnants of indigenous forest due to deforestation. In the desert regions, plant life is sparse, with a few enclaves of subtropical species. The semi-arid region has both desert and Mediterranean plant life. To learn more about nature and geography in Israel, visit the Israel Ministry of Tourism Website. (Source: Go Israel)
