"Maquis" is a name given to a certain type of vegetation, grayish green in color, which abounds on the dry boulder-strewn slopes of the Mediterranean region. It consists of aromatic plants, such as the rosemary, thyme, lavender, myrtle, mastic, and helichrysum, with cistus of various kinds, oleaster, and lavendula, intermingled with the buckthorn, wild olive, and juniper. Their perfume is said to protect them from animals, and they are able to withstand the long droughts of midsummer: here evidently the same conditions prevail...."
