Abstract:
Mediterranean ecosystems are intricately linked to human affairs. The shores around the Basin support remarkably interesting ecosystems that are important both biologically and socioeconomically. The region's landscapes, as well as its habitats and biota, all contribute towards the Mediterranean's richness and diversity. Over the millennia, however, the region has been the focus of landscape change and topographic modification as a consequence to continual colonization by different peoples and cultures. Particularly during the last decades of exceptionally rapid development, civilization has profoundly influenced the region's natural setting and degraded its environment. As Mediterranean landscapes are altered, the biodiversity of the region is adversely affected. in this context it is critical for conservationists and environmental managers to be able to draw on methodologies that adequately address the multitude of issues that influence the Mediterranean's landscapes.
