Distribution and autoecology off Prunus lusitanica L. in Iberian Peninsula.

R. S. Beltran


In the present work the distribution, the physical medium, and the vegetal groups of this species (which presents an outstanding botanical interest) on the Iberian Peninsula, have been studied. A survey was carried out, and 133 locations of the species in the Iberian Peninsula have been described, of which 25 were discovered during the field work. This survey has served to make a cartography of this species, and it has also served the collection of plants data and physical medium data (lithological and physiographic mainly). At a later stage, new data about the physical medium have been collected (edaphic and climatic mainly). All the data collected during the two previous stages have been analysed in order to obtain the common features of all locations on the one hand; and, on the other hand, the particularities of each geographical area of the Iberian Peninsula inhabited by the above mentioned species.
