Contributions to knowledge of the phytoclimate of Catalan cork oak stands.

Abstract

A phytoclimatic characterization of the stands of cork oak (Quercus suber) in Catalonia, Spain, is proposed, based on 14 climatic factors. The predominant climates in the Catalan cork oak areas are not specific to Q. suber, but they are unusual and homologues are scarce outside Catalonia.
