Abstract: "An evaluation of the biological diversity of Mediterranean forests and the challenges to be faced in ensuring their conservation. The plant diversity of Mediterranean forests is much greater than that of European forests. This rich diversity is a result of palaeogeographical and historical factors as well as ecological conditions. The Mediterranean region also shows closer interrelations than any other region in the world between its flora and major landscapes and the human activities that have been moulding them for nearly 10 000 years."
