Der Palmenwald von Elche in Spanien, T. Amersberger
Abstract: The Palmeral of Elche (Spain) represents the largest planting of Phoenix dactylifera L. in Europe. It displays both, an unique palm vegetation and a historic human heritage site, dating back some 2500–3000 years and presenting a palm grove with very peculiar characteristics regarding practices, pests, uses and socio-economic context. Although the climate is generally not suited for date production that requires much higher temperatures, the mild Mediterranean climate and the use of Phoenix hybrids offer factors for a sufficient economic use. The Palmeral shows a large diversity due to being bred over a very long time. - With 6 figures.
