- ... There is increasing interest in the use of sown ground covers in agriculture to provide alternative resources to predators and parasitoids as part of conservation biological control. Nevertheless, there is limited evidence that this approach is effective in commercial orchards, where a wild complex of plants co-occur with the sown plant species. In citrus orchards, ground covers with grasses (Poac ...

- ... Mediterranean climate is characterized by highly irregular rainfall patterns with marked differences between wet and dry seasons which lead to highly variable hydrological fluvial regimes. As a result, and in order to ensure water availability and reduce its temporal variability, a high number of large dams were built during the 20th century (more than 3500 located in Mediterranean rivers). Dams m ...
