Palestine has a global influence that greatly exceeds its small size. It's a tiny piece of land whose coexisting religious and political diversity is echoed in the remarkable range of ecological variation.
Palestine is a land that has a lot to offer for its people and the whole world because of its natural resources and unique species. This uniqueness is due to several factors: its location between three major continents (Europe, Asia, and Africa), the climate that provides it with a rich environment, and its rich and generous soil. These elements allow many forms of nature to inhabit this land and make it interesting for biologists and researchers alike.
Palestine is located to the east of the Mediterranean Sea between 29 and 33 North latitude 35 and 39 longitude. Palestine (here refers to the West Bank and Gaza Strip) the two territories border Israel from almost all direction except that the West Bank borders on the east and Gaza Strip borders Egypt to the south and the Mediterranean Sea on the west. The total land area of Palestine is estimated at 5.16 million donums of which 1.66 millions donums are under cultivation (1.5 million of donums in the west bank and 0.16 million in Gaza strip.)
