Abstract

Mediterranean ecosystems rival tropical ecosystems in terms of plant biodiversity. This rich biodiversity and the complex biogeographical and political issues make conservation a difficult task in the region. Species, habitat, ecosystem and landscapes approaches have been used to identify conservation targets at various scales : ie, European, national, regional and local. This paper reviews the biogeographic data, the problems arising from current conservation efforts and methods for the conservation assessment and prioritization using GIS
