THE ROOTS OF MENORCA - BOTANICAL WORKSHOPS
During this 4-day intensive workshop we will study the vascular flora of the Island, exploring the characteristics of its vegetation landscape, its main vegetation communities, and the endemic and singular flora of the island, as well as on the interaction between it and man (ethnobotany). The program will begin with a theory session in order to learn the main characteristics of the Island's Flora: origin, biogeography, conditions, state of conservation...The rest of activities will be field trips to become acquainted with different environments and their singularities. In this way, the routes will allow us to end up knowing well a cove, a wetland, the aridity of the northern coast whipped by the wind of Tramontana, the southern dune system...
This workshop will be led by Pere Fraga, member of the Menorcan Institute of Studies, who has ample professional experience in botany (floristic and taxonomic), conservation and biodiversity management, invasive alien plants control, gardening, sensitization, and social communication on ecological lines.
