Abstract

Heathland is a vegetal formation bound to all coastal zones of Western Europe, from Portugal to Bretagne. The type of soil, sandy, generally acid, and the presence of winds blowing from the Atlantic ocean, with middle or elevated rainfall, prevent the development of a forest. Characteristics elements are Ericaceae, Leguminosae and Graminoid plants. Among plants several degrees of adaptation to heathland environment can be recognized, which point to a remote origin of both species and ecosystem, which has been mostly free from ice during the Pleistocene glaciations. The human settlements go back to very remote times, as documented by many megalithic remains
