Response of past and present Mediterranean ecosystems to environmental change

Auteur :
ALLEN, H.D.

Description :
The aim of this paper is to review recent research (since 1997) on environmental change and ecosystem response. Long-term records are available to analyse changes over glacial-interglacial cycles, while high resolution records show the sensitivity and coupling of Mediterranean, North Atlantic and Greenland records. For the Holocene, there is continued debate about the relative impact of anthropogenic activity, but there is also increasing recognition that mediterranean-type ecosystems should not be regarded as fragile, degraded landscapes, but are disturbance-adapted.
