Plant Evolution in the Mediterranean

Insights for conservation

Second Edition

John D. Thompson

  • Integrates a diverse and scattered literature to produce a synthetic account of Mediterranean plant evolutionary ecology
  • Explores the major evolutionary processes in the context of regional history, in particular human activities as an ecological factor and their subsequent impact on plant evolution
  • Emphasizes applied issues such as management and conservation, describing the latest methods and approaches

New to this Edition:

  • All chapters heavily revised and updated to reflect the enormous amount of new work on Mediterranean flora since 2005
  • Complete reworking of the first edition content plus new chapters devoted to diversification and endemism, conservation and climate change, and future perspectives
