LOCATION & GENERAL INFORMATION
Morocco is located on the northwest corner of the African continent. Rain is not common in the Sahara region, where temperatures during most of the year are quite high, especially during the summer months. Temperatures are cooler during the early spring, late autumn & winter, particularly more so during the rest of the Moroccan region. Winter is also a great time of the year for birdwatching and bird photography in Morocco with cool temperatures, good visibility and less atmospheric haze, particularly for bird photography.
Mountains - 4 mountain ranges, these include the Rif along the Mediterranean coast, the Central Plateau, the Middle Atlas, the High Atlas.
Intensive cutting and grazing means a lot of the woodland has been replaced by low shrub vegetation, partilcuarly eucalyptus which has been extensively planted. The Souss valley, with its unique Argan woodland, lies between the High and Anti-Atlas. Argania is a genus of flowering plants containing the sole species Argania spinosa, known as argan, a tree endemic to the calcareous semidesert Sous valley of southwestern Morocco. n Morocco, arganeraie forests now cover some 8,280 km² and are designated as a UNESCO biosphere reserve. Their area has shrunk by about half during the last 100 years, owing to charcoal-making, grazing, and increasingly intensive cultivation. This cultivation and loss of this tree has had a pround effect on certain species, such as the Dark-chanting goshawk which was associated with this type of habitat, now sadly believed to be extinct from Morocco.
The climate is generally dry with hot summers and cold winters. Mountains rise to over 1000m and are covered with a steppe type vegetation dominated by Artemisia herba-alba, a perennial shrub and Stipa tenacissima, a perennial grass.
