Halting the loss of biodiversity in the Mediterranean: ECOPLANTMED project holds seminars on the importance of plant material in natural habitats restoration

The Mediterranean Basin is one of the most bio-diverse regions on the planet with 25.000 plant species, over half of which are found nowhere else in the world. Due to human activities, only a mere 5% of the original extent of Mediterranean biodiversity hotspot remains with relatively intact vegetation.

To contribute to the fight against the loss of biodiversity, ECOPLANTMED project intends to foster the use of native Mediterranean plants for natural habitat restoration or as a substitute for exotic ornamental plants on both public and private land.

The importance of plant material in natural habitats restoration projects will be discussed on the occasion of two events to take place on 13th of November in Valencia (Spain) and on 17th of November in Cagliari (Italy).
