The Mediterranean Basin hotspot consists of 5, islands scattered along the Mediterranean Sea, in addition to portions of 12 countries which surround it: Spain, France, the Balkan states, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and Algeria. The area ContinuedMissing: Crop protection.

      In this study, the effects of deficit irrigation (DI) on crop yields and irrigation water utilization efficiency (IWUE) of processing tomato are contrasting. This study aimed at analyzing a set of field experiments with drip irrigation available for Mediterranean Italy in terms of marketable yields and IWUE under DI. Both yields and IWUE were compared with the control treatment under full. Introduction. Tetraploid wheats have played a critical role in human history. Durum is the primary wheat for pasta and semolina production and the second most cultivated wheat after bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.).Although a ‘relic’ crop today, emmer wheat is used for bread making, animal feed and as a genetic resource for the improvement of durum and bread wheat varieties.

        A candidate crop to replace rapeseed is white mustard, which is adapted to Mediterranean environmental conditions. According to our models, its suitable area for cultivation will expand throughout the Mediterranean Basin and Central Europe. It has good potential as a biofuel crop and could be genetically improved. Mediterranean ecosystems rival tropical ecosystems in terms of plant biodiversity. The Mediterranean Basin (MB) itself hosts 25 plant species, half of which are endemic. This rich biodiversity and the complex biogeographical and political issues make conservation a difficult task in the region.

This book is focused on the challenges to implement sustainability in diverse contexts such as agribusiness, natural resource systems and new experiences made by the researchers of the School of Agricultural, Forestry, Food and Environmental Science (SAFE) of the University of.

Wheat currently provides 18% of the daily intake of calories and 20% of proteins for humans. Since its domestication in the Fertile Crescent, wheat has been the basic staple food of the major civilizations of Europe, West Asia and North Africa. The wheat-growing area within the Mediterranean Basin represents 27% of the arable land, and the region represents 60% of the world’s growing area Cited by: 4.

The Mediterranean basin is one of the most geologically, biologically, and culturally complex region and the only case of a large sea surrounded by three continents. The chapter is focused on a diversity of Mediterranean amphibians and reptiles, discussing major threats to the species and its conservation status.

There are amphibians, of which 80 (68%) are endemic and reptiles, of. host crop is the tomato. Tuta absoluta was detected in Europe for the first time in Spain in Since then, it has rapidly invaded other European countries and spread throughout the Mediterranean basin, including North Africa and the Middle East [1].

The tomato leafminer Tuta absoluta is native to South America where its preferred host crop is the absoluta was detected in Europe for the first time in Spain in Since then, it has rapidly invaded other European countries and spread throughout the Mediterranean basin, including North Africa and the Middle East.

The Mediterranean basin is famously heterogeneous, a patchwork of different microclimates hosting a large biodiversity, which transited from subtropical conditions to the climate we know today.

Let’s hop a bit forward in time: now imagine yourself walking in ancient Mesopotamia, the place from which Israel, Palestine, and Syria will rise up.

Region covered is all of Europe, from the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean basin, including western Turkey, Cyprus, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and the Azores, Canaries and Madeira.

The significance of this crop and of the olive oil socio-economic sector is largely acknowledged for many countries in this part of the globe. Atmospheric conditions play a key role in the establishment and sustainability of olive trees.
