Changes and disturbances of forest ecosystems caused by human activities in the western part of the mediterranean basin
The development of socio-economic activity over the past ten years in the Mediterranean region has induced severe changes in the main natural forest ecosystems and new geopedological constraints linked to the removal of the surface soil layer combined with regular climatic stress strongly decrease the resilience of these ecosystems which are under continual pressure (unbalanced models).
Biogeography, ecology and history of Mediterranean Quercus ilex ecosystems
Quercus ilex sensu lato plays an important role in Western Mediterranean ecosystems, but is poorly developed in the Eastern Mediterranean where it is often replaced by Quercus calliprinos. The…
Systematics, ecology and phylogeographic significance of Olea europaea L. ssp. maroccana (Greuter & Burdet) P. Vargas et al., a relictual olive tree in south-west Morocco
According to cpDNA and mtDNA analysis, the Moroccan olive and the Canarian olive are related and belong to the same sub-taxon, and this biogeographical affinity is strongly supported by other recent phylogenetic studies.
The phytogeographical significance of S.W. Morocco compared to the Canary Islands
A phytogeographical comparison of S.W. Morocco (the 'Argan area' western part of the Anti-Atlas mountains) and the neighbouring Canary Islands is performed in order to determine whether or not this…
