The Jabal Moussa biosphere reserve is located in the Keserwan-Jbeil area, 50 Km from Beirut, Lebanon. The biosphere reserve, which contains more than 720 plant species, is a true mosaic of ecological systems broadly representing the ‘evergreen sclerophyllous shrubland and forests’ biogeographic region within the Mediterranean biome.

The Flowers Guide of the Jabal Moussa Biosphere Reserve (Guide des belles fleurs de la réserve de biosphère de Jabal Moussa) written by Georges and Henriette Tohmé, is an excellent guide that will help visitors to identify all endemic plants of the reserve, as well as the more common and rare species, and those that are specific to the eastern Mediterranean region.
