Palestine has a wide range of biodiversity concerns with a large variety of plants, and particular geographic location, between Asia, Africa and European and in conjunction with a series of environmental, bioclimatology and climatology factors, making it a very fertile land and unique biodiversity   . Climate and bioclimate factors played an important role in influence on plant communities  , flora and biological resources and plant physiology, biology and production  -  . The flora of Palestine includes 149 - 155 endemic species (6% of the total flora), of which 43% are found to be common, 27.5% are rare and 25.6% are very rare  . Moreover, it is the meeting ground for plant species originating from wide world regions, as Western Europe, Central Asia and Eastern Africa and other countries. Palestine is located in the Mediterranean region, being considered as one of the region of biodiversity in the world that should be subjected to conservation   . Flora of Palestine is playing a role in economical important plants includes vegetables, crops and fruit trees, providing the local and international market with essential agricultural crops and it’s very important used in field of medicine and research. In the other side, they are more than 2750 species of plants including 138 families that were estimated for Palestinian flora    .
The main aims of the present study are to contribute to the knowledge of the flora of Palestine as endemic rare, and to study some of characteristics biologically and ecologically of plant in Palestine.
2. Materials and Methods
Flora of Palestine is important in medicine field and it is a role economical as fruit trees and vegetables, and to the know of flora of Palestine as endemic rare in the Mediterranean region, we selected a sampling areas in the regions of Hebron (south of Palestine); Jenin (north of Palestine); Jericho (east of Palestine and the area of Jordan valley) and Ramallah (center of Palestine), in which inventories or species were taken of 400 sampled plants in the locations previous. Forests, trees, herbaceous and shrub lands were sampled in order to obtain biological indicators for thermotype, ombrotype and to knowledge flora endemic rare at some of areas of Palestine. The inventories were made following Braun-Blanquet  , and the Flora of Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Negev, Sinai and Palestine were used for the floristic study. The absence of classification studies on the areas led us to run a statistical treatment on the 400 sampled of species. Moreover, we transformed the Braun-Blanquet species abundance-dominance values into those of Van der Maarel  , and we used the classification of the earth of Salvador Rivas Martinez      to analyses of the bioclimate factors in Palestine, and data were used from Meteorology of Palestinian stations for the 35 years (1975-1998 and 2000-2008), addition to the vegetation was interpreted according to several methodological works in the world     .
2.1. Study Area
Palestine is located between longitudes 34˚15' and 35˚40' East and between latitudes 29˚30' and 33˚15' North. The geographic location of Palestine plays a major role in affecting the features of its flora and climate and the bioclimate diversity between the southern to northern parts, moreover, we selected the endemic rare species from the location of region Hebron, Jenin, Ramallah and Jericho cities, and their villages with the total area distance is 1145 km2 as in the Figure 1, Table 1 & Table 2.

2.2. Targeting and Collection of Plant Materials
We studied four important areas extends from the north to the south of Palestine, in this study we took 400 samples of different species plants from Hebron (Idna, Ad-Dhahiriya, Yatta villages and Hebron city); Jenin (Jenin city, Al-Yamon, Methylone and Yabod); Jericho (Wadi Al-Qalt, Ain or Tal Sultan and Al-Nuwaimeh) and Ramallah (Umm Safa, Turmus’ayya and Qibya) (Table 2 and Table 4).
3. Results and Discussion
The location of the Palestine has given the study areas a tropical to a little humid climate    , influenced by the mountains trade winds, geological and the topography of the regions, the climate is similar to that of the other Mediterranean basin. The annual average temperature is (18˚C - 22˚C), with little variation during night or day and few seasonal fluctuations. The hottest month is July and August, and the coldest is January. The annual rainfall distribution clearly reveals tow wet seasons, from September to November and November to March, while the dry season extends from June to September. The rainfall distribution reflects the direction of the trade winds, costal area, topography, temperature and the orientation of the mountain ranges, with a deceased rainfall to move from north to the south of Palestine, addition to the study area is influenced by the annual ombrothermic index value between (0.3 - 3.4), simple continentaly index value between (14.9 - 22), and compensated thermicity index value between (306/512) (Table 3), we used the following formulas to calculate the values
Table 3. Bioclimatic belts and ombrotype in study area of Palestine.
Simple continentality index (Ic), ombrothermic index (Io) and compensated thermicity index (It/Itc).
of the various index Rivas Martínez (1996): Annual ombrothermic index, Io = Pp/Tp; simple continentality index, Ic = Tmax − Tmin; thermicity index, or where applicable compensated thermicity index, It/Itc = (T + M + m) 10. Pp = positive precipitation and Tp = positive temperature (in this case equivalent to annual precipitation and average annual temperature divided by 12, as all the months have an average temperature above 0˚); P = precipitation of the months indicated; T = average temperature of the months indicated; Tmax = maximum temperature of the averages of the warmest month of the year; Tmin = minimum temperature of the averages of the coldest month of the year; T = Mean annual temperature; M = Mean of the maximum temperature of the coldest month of the year; and m = average of the minimum temperature of the coldest month of the year.
Nevertheless, they are variation to the altitude (−250 - 1040) meters on the sea level as temperature (−3˚C - 42˚C) and rainfall (100 - 900 millimeters). For this reason, temperatures of 0˚C can be recorded in inner valleys over 900 meters during the winter months as Hebron and Ramallah. Hurricanes and storms dramatically change the climate from June to October, especially in the south of Palestine as Hebron, and the east area at Jericho. These hurricanes originate in the tropics close in the area of Sinai desert, Negev and the Jordan valley regions.
3.2. Biogeographically & Vegetation Analysis, and Origin of the Flora
The flora of Palestine has 2.750 species     , of which 155 are endemic (6% of the total flora), and Leguminaceae family for instance with its 268 species contains 21 endemics, while among 23 species of Iridaceae, eight are endemic  . The floristic analysis reveals a great variety of influences, since a large number of species on Palestine derived, by means of migratory routes, from the floras of tropical Golf Arab, north Africa, and tropical to humid in Asia and Mediterranean basin, on the other hand, we confirmed that the flora of the occupied Palestinian territories has Euro-Siberian; Sudano-Zambesian, Saharo-Arabian; Irano-Turnian; Americas, Australia and South & north Africa; Mediterranean; and plant endemic, and it has nineteen principal plant communities such as Winter Deciduous (Montane) Forests, Carob and Terebinth Woodlands, savanna Mediterranean, Mediterranean, and sand, Maquis, Oak Woodlands, Lotus and Herbaceous Vegetation and others  .
In the statistical treatment we obtained 53 endemic species are very rare (Figure 2), representing forests, Lotus and Herbaceous vegetation, copses and high shrub lands as:

Erodium subintegrifolium Eig.; Golan, northern valleys, Nablus desert, Jenin, Dead Sea valley, Hebron, and northern Negev as Iris atrofusca Baker and Allium telavivense; and the rest of Palestinian mountains in Hebron, Jenin, Nablus, Ramallah Jericho as Iris atropurpurea Dinsmore, this leads us to propose, for the areas of the eastern Mediterranean.
Furthermore, according study area we indicated that the flora endemic rare has 53 species, which of them 13% belong to Compositae family, 7.54% Poaceae, Caryophyllaceae, Liliaceae and Papilionaceae families, 5.66% Iridaceae family (Table 4), and the total repetition of the number of plants species selected in the study area are equals 6091, which of them 41.79% (2546 plant) in Hebron, 45.83% (2792 plant) in Jenin, 1.60% (98 plant) in Jericho and 10.78% (657 plant) in Ramallah, as in the (Figure 2), and Anacamptis israelitica H. Baumann & Dafni, Anthemis brachycarpa Eig., and Paronychia palaestina Eig. species were dominated and representinga high existed in the study area of Palestine (Figure 3). The regression coefficients (R) are equal 0.801, 0.771, 0.001, and 0.322 for Jenin, Hebron, Jericho and Ramallah respectively.
However, Tamarix aphylla L. should be included in the Mediterranean and Saharan-Arabian class Nerio-Tamaricetea  ; and in Tamaricetalia   , Braun-Blanquet J.  , the only order described to date, the absence of Tamarix gallica and Tamarix Africana, and the presence in Asiatic territories of Tamarix tetragyna, T. tetrandra, T. jordanis etc.
Moreover, distribution plants of the flora Palestinian area  comprises updated nomenclature, distribution and habit data for the species in the area covered by flora Palestinian  -  . However, we noted that the plants in Palestine are considered an important part of the plant to the Region Mediterranean basin, which is similar to many studies such as    . Nevertheless, there

coexistence between flora of Palestine due to the biodiversity, the topography, the nature of the climate and bioclimatic factors.
Within the historic lands of Palestine, the number of plant species is 2750 in an area of 27,000 km2, of which them 2485 species in the area of occupied Palestinian territories year 1967 with a 5600 km2, whereas the flora of study area (Hebron, Jenin, Ramallah and Jericho) of Palestine has 1881 species (with the area of 1145 km2), 53 plant species of which are endemically rare such as Paronychia palaestina Eig, Trifolium palaestinum Boiss., Trifolium philistaeum Zohary, Suaeda philistaeum Zohary and others, representing forests, copses, herbaceous and high shrublands influenced by climate as climatophilous and edaphohygrophilic, and bioclimate factors as ombrotype and thermotype.
Palestine flora and biodiversity belong to arid, semi-arid, dry, sub-humid and humid ombrotype and lower inframediterranean to mesomediterranean environments thermotype in Mediterranean region. Consequently, Palestine’s geographical position has been, both its blessing and its curse, located at the meeting point between Eurasia and Africa and plants of three continents have interacted and spread throughout history. Moreover, the flora endemic species representing a more present in the area of Hebron and Jenin, because Hebron is affected by climate and biodiversity of Mediterranean basin, topography, Dead Sea, Red Sea, Sinai desert and Negev and the mountains highland, meanwhile Jenin is affected by Mediterranean basin, and Jordan valley and Al-Aghwar, and other factors.
In the end, we need achieve some of projects and researches to knowledge all of Palestine plant and established plants bank.
