Floristic composition, Life forms and Phytogeography of Al-Hashr Mountain, Jazan region, SW Saudi Arabia

Lamiaa Farouq Shalabię , Yahya Soliman Masrahi.

Abstract
The Floristic composition, life forms and phytogeographical ęaffinities were conducted in Al-Hashr Mountain, Southwestern ęSaudi Arabia. In total, 116 plant species belonging to 95 genera ęand 47 families were collected and identified. Asteraceae and ęPoaceae were the most important families in terms of species ęrichness. The life forms spectrum was dominated by ęchamaephytes, while the remainders were therophytes and ęphanerophytes, denoting phytoclimate of semi-arid mountainous ęhabitat with topographical variation refuge many microhabitats, as ęwell as anthropogenic factors. Due to its location, the study area, ęas a part of southwestern Saudi Arabia, is a meeting place of ęsome phytogeographical regions of Holarctic and Palaeotropic, ęwith high affinity to Sudano-Zambezian phytochorion, as well as ęhigh degree of endemism of South Arabian. ę

Key words: Al-Hasher Mountain, Floristic composition, Life forms, Chorotype, ęJazan, Saudi Arabia.ę
