Abstract

RECONDES project funded under the Fifth Framework Programme, seeks to advance knowledge and understanding of interactions between vegetation and surface processes within semi-arid landscapes to the point where guidelines can be developed for the mitigation of desertification. This publication serves as a state of the art review of existing knowledge on degradation processes and knowledge of soils, plants and vegetation of the dry Mediterranean lands taken from a range of disciplines. Detailed reviews are provided at the scale of the different land-units. Existing knowledge on connectivity and landscape analysis which form the basis of further research in the RECONDES project are discussed.
