The insular vegetation types usually considered as ‘typically Mediterranean’ are the evergreen and sclerophyllous shrublands and Author: Frédéric Médail.

      Vegetation types range from forests to woodlands, savannas, shrublands, and grasslands; "mosaic habitat" landscapes are common, where differing vegetation types are interleaved with one another in complex patterns created by variations in soil, topography, exposure to wind and sun, and fire of the woody vegetation in Mediterranean-climate regions is sclerophyll, which means . The Mediterranean area is one of the most significantly altered hotspots on Earth, since it has been intensively affected by human activity for millennia. As a result, only % of its primary vegetation remained unaltered and the landscape has been repeatedly by:

      This volume explores the climates, landscapes, ecosystems and hazards that comprise the Mediterranean world. It traces the development of the Mediterranean landscape over very long timescales and examines modern processes and key environmental issues in a wide range of settings. The Mediterranean is the only region on Earth where three continents meet and this interaction has . Recent dynamics of the Mediterranean vegetation and landscape. John Wiley & Sons, Chichester, UK.

Introduction. The Mediterranean-type vegetation is one of the world's major fire-prone biomes (Naveh,Bond et al., ).In the areas in which this type of vegetation occurs, fire is a crucial process controlling vegetation dynamics and structure (Naveh,Retana et al.,Baeza et al., ) since the early Holocene at least (Carríon and Van Geel,Ali et al., ).Cited by:.

Flather2 1Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa Cited by: We present a spatially explicit Landscape Fire-Succession Model (LFSM) developed to represent Mediterranean Basin landscapes and capable of integrating .Mediterranean vegetation, any scrubby, dense vegetation composed of broad-leaved evergreen shrubs, bushes, and small trees usually less than m (about 8 feet) tall and growing in regions lying between 30° and 40° north and south latitudes.

These regions have a climate similar to that of the Mediterranean area, which is characterized by hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters.
