Photographic Field Guide to the Plants of the Western Hajar Mountains, Sultanate of Oman with a Complete Checklist of Vascular Plant Species specifically contains the main plant species found from 1500 to 3000 m altitude. It includes 114 plant species, representing 37% of the regional flora of the Western Hajar Mountains.
