There are many different subtypes of forest within each of these categories. Which kind of
forest can grow depends on local soils, temperatures and rainfall. For example, in
southern Europe, long hot summers encourage the growth of a special kind of vegetation
called the Mediterranean scrublands. Although they rarely grow thickly
enough to be called a true forest, the trees in the Mediterranean scrub lands include
small oaks and pines.
