Endangered Species

The Teucrium campanulatum is a plant of the family Labiatae (thyme), which is distributed in the western Mediterranean, especially in the Iberian Peninsula, Italy (Italian mainland and Sicily) and North Africa (Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria).

It is very sensitive to habitat disturbance, besides presenting highly fluctuating population size as a result of erratic rainfall, which explains that populations have a certain itinerant and unstable in space and time species.

The populations located in Abarán, White and Molina de Segura have disappeared as a result of human action.

In the Region of Murcia is protected by Decree 50/2003, of 30 May, by which the Regional Catalogue of Protected Flora of the Region of Murcia is created and rules for the use of various forest species are given.
