C. The dry forests of Sidamo, Bale and Hararghe The dry juniper forests of Sidamo (Borana), Bale and Hararghe occur at 1500–2200m, have a range of temperatures at 20–25°C and of rainfall at 400–700mm, distributed in two rainy seasons, April–May and September–October. In Sidamo they are found at Arero, Yavello, Mega and Negelle. The dry forest south of Negelle is very open, almost juniper woodland with a canopy 10–15m high and is often associated with woodland or evergreen bushland at the fringes.

Since this is the zone where settled communities with a cereal-based agriculture have existed for thousands of years, and where most of the population of the region now lives, the natural vegetation is very much reduced. Much forest has been replaced by woodland and grasslands on gentler slopes, and by evergreen bushland on steeper slopes (Tilahun et al. 1996). The few larger forest patches are widely separated from each other by areas of cultivation and wooded grassland, while the primary species of the wooded grasslands of the plateau are similarly dispersed and must have long existed in similar habitats.
