REDMED Restoration of degraded ecosystems in Mediterranean regions
Time span: February 1998 - May 2001
Aim: Given the need for land restoration, REDMED aims to apply the scientific advances on desertification processes, soil behaviour and plant ecophysiology, on restoring the main identified cases of land desertification spread over the Northern Mediterranean.
Description: REDMED addresses specifically the restoration of extremely degraded wildlands, representative of desertified areas in Mediterranean Europe. The first objective is the development of nursery techniques to optimise seedling and seed adaptation to the extremely limiting conditions in the field. The second objective is the development of restoration field techniques.
Countries: Field sites in Spain, Portugal and Greece; partners in Spain, Portugal, Greece and UK.
