Threatened landscape in Alentejo, Portugal: the 'montado' and other 'agro-silvo-pastoral' systems



Threatened landscape in Alentejo, Portugal: the 'montado' and other 'agro-silvo-pastoral' systems



Landscape and Urban Planning 24(1/4): 43-48



In Portugal, agrosilvopastoral systems correspond to the mixed land use types characteristic of the region of Alentejo, in the southern part of the country. There is a triple and complementary use of the land, adapted to the low potentialities of the soil and to the Mediterranean climate: open forest (oaks with olive and chestnut trees), grazing and cultivation.
