Presentation

The Mediterranean basin has been recognised as one of the world’s 25 biodiversity hotspots for priority conservation, accounting for more than 25,000 plant species, around half of which are endemic. In particular, the Tyrrhenian islands and archipelagos are characterized by an extremely high degree of endemism.

The National Park of La Maddalena archipelago (Italy), located between northeast Sardinia and southern Corsica, is considered a micro-hotspot, hosting more than one thousand vascular-plant taxa, 54 being Sardinian endemics. This archipelago comprises 7 major islands and 55 small islets, covering a land area of around 5,134 hectares. While the islets are characterised by rocky and dry sites unable to support woodland or forest, the main islands are covered with dense evergreen forests of Quercus ilex and Juniperus phoenicea, mixed with several shrub species typical of the Mediterranean maquis such as Arbutus unedo, Cistus spp. and Erica arborea as understorey layer.
