Our wisdom of the useful features of the vegetation of mediterranean-cl imate areas has elevated tremendously some time past decade. in recent years the potential of large-scale util ization of biomass for power from those areas has been proposed. for you to check the feasibil ity of those proposals we needs to examine the effective constitution of those plant groups and the way they range via time and house. This symposium was once an try to learn our lately received easy wisdom of the environmental I imitations at the productiveness of Mediterranean plant groups with regards to the implications of the potential util ization of those groups for power and chemical compounds. in particular during this booklet we study the mechanisms through which crops of mediterranean-cl imate areas keep their effective ability below the be triumphant ing stipulations of summer time draught and iciness chilly. We examine the features of leaves, their background, morphology and plasticity. Evergreen sclerophyll leaves are universal to the dominant vegetation of all mediterranean-cl imate areas and therefore they've got value by way of bettering carbon achieve and water-use potency in addition to making sure survival below the be successful ing cl imatic conditions.
