Mediterranean Quarry Rehabilitation Manual

Ecological Outcomes Achieved. Eliminate existing threats to the ecosystem: More than 50% survival of introduced woody plants in most quarries; adequate herb cover. Factors limiting recovery of the ecosystem: Physical instability of substrates (slopes > 30%). Severe drought on the first year after sowing/planting (2005), leading to exceptional plot management actions (e.g. irrigation).
