  • ecological
  • Mediterranean forest types can be characterized by their heterogeneity, whether climatic, edaphic, geomorphologic, floristic, biogeographic or historical, and instability and vulnerability, consequences of the former and due to genetic and ecological factors as well as to the anthropogenic actions [ 1 ]. (intechopen.com)
  • This brings a further urgency to the task of communicating detailed but readily accessible information on the Mediterranean biota, and an ecological, historical and evolutionary perspective to the changing contexts in which the region's flora and fauna continue to evolve. (oup.com)

  • On the other hand, northern and eastern parts of Kahramanmaraş Province are not included in Mediterranean region. (wikipedia.org)
  • While the cultural advances during the Bronze Age had mostly been confined to the eastern parts of the Mediterranean, with the Iron Age, the entire coastal region surrounding the Mediterranean now becomes involved, significantly due to the Phoenician expansion from the Levant, beginning in ca. the 12th century. (wikipedia.org)
  • history
  • The Bronze Age collapse may be seen in the context of a technological history that saw the slow, comparatively continuous spread of iron-working technology in the region, beginning with precocious iron-working in what is now Romania in the 13th and 12th centuries. (wikipedia.org)
  • mostly
  • This zone is mostly used for agriculture, but studies say Mastic (Pistacia lentiscus), Common Juniper (Juniperus communis), (Aristolochia baetica) and Mediterranean Smilax or Common Smilax (Smilax aspera) would normally grow here. (wikipedia.org)
