Mediterranean-Climate Ecosystems

Great weather, abundant harvests, fabulous food, some of the world's most cosmopolitan, and romantic, cities – as well as the world's most critical biodiversity hotspots -- make up what are known as Mediterranean-Climate Ecosystems.

This UCTV Prime series from UCTV and the UC Natural Reserve System offers an overview the world's Mediterranean-climate zones, pointing out their similarities, unique characteristics and importance, while also illuminating the factors that threaten them. From geology to ocean and atmospheric forces, the series explores the many factors that make these environments so unique and alluring.

Produced as a resource for the International Cooperative for the Management of Mediterranean Climate Ecosystems, or INCOMME, the series affords a better understanding of one of earth's most precious and endangered ecosystems, and what can be done to ensure that they endure.
