Root-Bernstein M, Valenzuela R, Huerta M, Armesto J, Jaksic F (2017) Acacia caven nurses endemic sclerophyllous
trees along a successional pathway from silvopastoral savanna to forest.
Ibero-Maghrebian thermomediterranean sclerophyllous

Effects of grazing on epiphytic lichen vegetation in a Mediterranean mixed evergreen sclerophyllous
and deciduous shrubland (northern Greece).
With an extremely diverse set of topics from the fantastic keynotes, including the evolution of sclerophyllous
vegetation in Australia, molecular visualisation in teaching, photonics and education precursors to encourage STEM as a career to name a few, I was a little concerned I might be out of my depth, but I was surprised at how much I gained from the keynote speakers!

Here we followed the biome characterization from Walter (1970), and modified by Hernandez Fernandez (2001), which represents the 10 climate types present in the Earth today (I: evergreen tropical rainforest; II: tropical deciduous woodland; II/III: savannah; III: tropical desert; IV: sclerophyllous
woodland; V: temperate evergreen forest; VI: nemoral broadleaf-deciduous forest; VII: steppe; VIII: taiga; IX: tundra).
Broadleaved forests include deciduous broadleaved forests, evergreen broadleaved forests, sclerophyllous
forests, mixed deciduous and evergreen broadleaved forests, monsoon forests, tropical rain forests, and seasonal rain forests .
In the western half of Madagascar, below elevations of 800 m, montane forest shifts to Dry Deciduous Forest, dominated by sclerophyllous
trees and shrubs, as this area falls within the rain shadow created by the eastern mountains.
The study site had uneven topography (elevation 300-1,800 m, slopes to 40[degrees]) and vegetation comprised of sclerophyllous
forests and shrublands (Gajardo, 1994).
