The Vegetation of the Iberian Peninsula; 2 volume set


  • Provides updated and rigorous information about the vegetation of the Iberian Peninsula
  • Describes 14 regional sectors in which the peninsula and Balearic Islands have been divided
  • Contains a special section about aquatic vegetation, gypsum and dolomite vegetation, coastal vegetation, mountain flora and vegetation, conservation issues, and alien flora
  • With contributions by 70 Spanish and Portuguese flora and vegetation experts, this book offers an updated and comprehensive synthesis of the plant communities of the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic Islands.

    The work 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.
