A heath is a shrubland habitat found mainly on free-draining infertile, acidic soils and is characterised by open, low-growing woody vegetation. Moorland is generally related to high-ground heaths with—especially in Great Britain—a cooler and damper climate. Heaths are widespread worldwide but are fast disappearing and considered a rare habitat in Europe.They form extensive and highly diverse communities across Australia in humid and sub-humid areas where fire regimes with recurring burning are required for the maintenance of the heathlands. Even more diverse though less widespread heath communities occur in Southern Africa. Extensive heath communities can also be found in the California chaparral, New Caledonia, central Chile, and along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. In addition to these extensive heath areas, the vegetation type is also found in scattered locations across all continents, except Antarctica.(Wikipedia)

----------------------------------------

Eine Heide ist ein Buschlandlebensraum, der hauptsächlich auf frei entwässernden unfruchtbaren, sauren Böden vorkommt und durch offene, niedrig wachsende Holzvegetation gekennzeichnet ist. Moorland ist im Allgemeinen mit hochgelegenen Heiden verwandt, die - insbesondere in Großbritannien - ein kühleres und feuchteres Klima aufweisen. Heiden sind weltweit verbreitet, verschwinden jedoch schnell und gelten als seltener Lebensraum in Europa. Sie bilden ausgedehnte und sehr unterschiedliche Gemeinschaften in ganz Australien in feuchten und subfeuchten Gebieten, in denen für die Erhaltung der Heideflächen Feuerregime mit wiederkehrendem Brennen erforderlich sind. Im südlichen Afrika gibt es noch vielfältigere, wenn auch weniger verbreitete Heidegemeinschaften. Umfangreiche Heidegemeinschaften finden sich auch im kalifornischen Chaparral, in Neukaledonien, in Zentralchile und entlang der Mittelmeerküste. Zusätzlich zu diesen ausgedehnten Heidegebieten kommt der Vegetationstyp auch an verstreuten Orten auf allen Kontinenten außer der Antarktis vor.(Wikipedia)
