The Vegetation of the Iberian Peninsula (2-Volume Set)

About this book

With contributions by 70 Spanish and Portuguese flora and vegetation experts, The Vegetation of the Iberian Peninsula offers an updated and comprehensive synthesis of the plant communities of the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic Islands.

It is divided into two volumes, the first of which addresses the general history, geography, bioclimatology, flora, vegetation dynamics and biogeography of the area. It also provides a detailed description of the vegetation of 9 territorial sectors of the central and northern half of the area by selected regional experts. In the second volume, a first section describes the vegetation of the remaining 5 sectors, while a second section examines particular features of coasts, high mountains, aquatic environments, gypsum and dolomite areas, invasive plants, biodiversity and human-shaped landscapes. It is a valuable resource for scientists as all the basic information is offered for research documenting purposes, for conservationists as it is framed within the Habitat Directive typology, and for anyone interested in the terrestrial ecosystems of that part of the world.
