Shelters for crops in the Mediterranean region

, : Shelters for crops in the Mediterranean region. Acta Horticulturae (43(1)): 13-41

The main features of the Mediterranean climate are described and the considerable differences which exist between different parts of the region are noted. The principal properties of glass and plastic materials for greenhouses and other protective structures are summarized, and the modification of climatic factors by these structures is reviewed.

Proceedings of the first meeting of the CIHEAM Cooperative Working Group on Underutilized Fruit Crops in the Mediterranean Region, Zaragoza (Spain), 9-10 November 1994. Over recent years there has been an increase of interest in all Mediterranean countries in the so-called underutilized fruit crops: figs, loquats, persimmons, pomegranates and Barbary figs. Although all considered as marginal crops, each is of con...
