Abstract: Sacred groves can be particularly useful for conserving biodiversity by covering a wider variety of habitats than would be achieved by protecting a single large area. Sometimes it is not feasible to maintain large tracts of forest. An undiscussed yet obvious reason is the absence of large forests due to historical deforestation and fragmentation. Aiming to extend the attention given to small forest fragments for the conservation of biodiversity, I present an extreme case: the Ethiopian Orthodox church forests.
