Rivers and smaller reservoirs dried up, cattle perished and even xerophilous
pollen increases upward, maintaining a high percentage.
As they live in the soil under shrubs, under the bark of trees or shrubs, or in rodent burrows, many of these animals are not strictly xerophilous
rocky grasslands on calcareous substrates of the northern fringes of the Pannonian Basin (Southern Moravia, Southern Slovakia, Eastern Austria, Northern Hungary) and the Ukrainian Podolya (Eastern ukraine).
Although it is likely that in this region xerophytic plants existed, to be best of our knowledge there are no fossil records older than 10,000 years for the most xerophilous
species, such as Larrea, Fouquieria, and Hechtia (Wells, 1977; Schultheis & Baldwin, 1999).
Vegetation was a mixture of xerophilous
plants: chaparral, palms (Brahea dulcis, B.
With respect to areas of natural shrubs, prickly xerophilous
and ephemeral vegetation had most of the irreversible soil losses (>50t); when its coverage in the area was considered (15.
Restingas are Quaternary habitats characterized by sandy soils with high salt concentration and covered by predominantly herbaceous and shrubby xerophilous
vegetation (Franco et al.
Cerrado savanna and the Caatinga xerophilous

The first vegetation type is characterized by stripped communities here ascribed to the alliance Festucion burnatii, representing xerophilous
mountain communities subjected to cryoturbation processes previously described in the highest altitudinal belt of the Picos de Europa (RIVAS-MARTINEZ & al.
Floristics and plant physionomy of four habitats were studied in the Papas de Arriba ranch, Ojuelos de Jalisco, Jalisco: xerophilous
scrub, natural grassland, an established orchard of prickly pear (Opuntia spp.
Thus, the home range size and distance traveled by the Texan white-tailed deer in xerophilous
shrubs of northeastern Mexico is analyzed in relation to the amount and distribution of rainfall, environmental temperature and other factors such as sex, physiological stage, and year.

On the first division level, the dendrogram of the HCA performed on pollen data (Figure 3) shows a clear discrimination between xerophilous
Pinus sylvestris var.
serpentina in this community also denotes a similarity with the most xerophilous
grasslands of the Deschampsion mediae alliance (Plantagini serpentinae-Jasonietum tuberosae O.
