Insularities : fragmentation and connectivity in the Mediterranean region, a social and Biological perspective

One of our goals in this multidisciplinary workgroup is to surpass the apparent Mediterranean paradox, i.e a place that is an alpha-diversity hotspot (in marine and terrestrial environment) but with a wide past of humans’ activities, a true melting pot of culture along with a wide range of agro ecosystems.

The original proposal of this group is to approach the question by the prism of insularity or insularities (ie. true islands, underwater caves, mountain tops, ports, oases, etc.), which form a mosaic of a multitude of ecosystems and ecotones, at different spatial scales (from gene to species, or from community to agro-ecosystem) and to study their impact on biodiversity, in an approach integrating the perspectives to the both biological and social. A short sentence that summarizes our objectives is “Diversity and humans activities in a context of Mediterranean insularities”.
