How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Restoration efforts in the Mediterranean Basin have been changing from a silvicultural to an ecological restoration approach. Yet, to what extent the projects are guided by ecological restoration principles remains largely unknown. To analyse this issue, we built an on-line survey addressed to restoration practitioners.

Green technology " phytoremediation " approach was applied in WadiA lsamin in Hebron-Palestine to evaluate the plant efficiency in remediation of soil that is polluted with chromium (Cr). An open field controlled experiment was conducted to assess the efficiency of two plant species, namely corn (Zea mays) and tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum), in remedi...
Surface runoff and erosion are the major contributors to soil degradation worldwide. These processes are especially severe in regions with sparse vegetation cover. A 2-year experiment was set up along an aridity gradient in Al-Khalil, Palestine, to quantify soil loss and water loss from arable fields and to test for the mitigating effect of native...
Soils from 100 irrigated fields (95 under vegetables, 5 under citrus) in different geographical locations in the West Bank (Palestinian Autonomous Territory) were surveyed for hymexazol-insensitive (HIS) Pythium species using the surface soil dilution plate (SSDP) method with the VP3 medium amended with 50 mg/L hymexazol (HMI) (VP3H50), over a peri...
The aim of the SAGE Centre is to empower societies in the Middle East to find science-based solutions to adaptive and sustainable management of natural resources in an era of global change. SAGE will collect, assess and make available data about the current and future situation with regard to regional climate and natural resources.
Our scientific goal is to understand the effect of projected climate extremes on the functioning of rangelands and their productivity in the West Bank. The applied goal is in identifying means to mitigate adverse climate change effects on fodder quantity and quality.
