Regions with Mediterranean-type climates include parts of California, South America, Australia, and of course, Europe. The effect of global climate change on these heavily populated areas will have major social and political ramifications.
This volume addresses issues in these areas, from processes at the leaf level to the individual, ecosystem, and landscape levels. This book will serve to raise awareness on the significance of these types of ecosystems, and on their sensitivity to the threat that global change represents.

Industry Reviews

"...with extensive up-to-date reference lists and a very complete index, here we have an excellent book with a very high standard of contributions, a key work for the whole of Mediterranean studies and global change research." The Holocene
