Afro-alpine and sub-afroalpine vegetation

407 Comments · Agriculture

These account for some 0.2% of the total area of the country and are found above 3,200m altitude.

They consist mostly of short shrub and heath vegetation used partly for sedentary grazing and browsing; and, where the terrain permits, for some cultivation of barley.

The major regions are the Simen highlands of Gonder, parts of southeastern Welo, parts of central Arsi and northern Bale.
