Although Libya was known as the breadbasket of the Roman Empire in ancient times, climatic changes have eroded its agricultural productivity. Today, most of Libya is either devoid of vegetation or supports only sparse growth. Date palms and olive and orange trees grow in the scattered oases, and junipers and mastic trees are found in the higher elevations. Wildlife includes desert rodents, hyenas, gazelles, and wildcats. Eagles, hawks, and vultures are common.
