The Andalusia Project: Nature
Andalusia is one of the richest regions in terms of biological diversity, not only in the Iberian Peninsula, but also in the entire Mediterranean area.
Geological history, the formation of the Mediterranean, the glaciations during the Quaternary period and its present day relief, its proximity to Africa to the south and its connection with the Hercynian massif, its extensive Mediterranean and Atlantic coastline, all combine to form a region with a tremendous wealth of landscapes, history, flora and fauna. Needless to say, reflecting this immense biodiversity in a single work represents a major challenge, and this is the first time in the modern age at least that such a feat has been achieved. The Nature series of The Andalusian Project offers specialized professionals and lay readers alike an in-depth and scientific insight into a range of topics and data related to the region’s flora and fauna. No other work offers such a wealth of detail as that to be found in these volumes.
