Aegean biodiversity

The Aegean archipelago hosts more than 8,000 islands and 3000 plant taxa.

Aegean biogeography

The Aegean archipelago is one of the largest archipelagos in the world and has long fascinated biogeographers due to its high environmental heterogeneity, complex palaeogeography, high diversity and endemism.

Ecological factors driving plant species diversity in the South Aegean Volcanic Arc and other central Aegean islands

**Background:** The South Aegean Volcanic Arc (SAVA), one of the most notable geological structures of the Mediterranean Sea, is floristically well-known. Nevertheless, the factors that contribute to shaping the plant species richness of the SAVA …
