Abstract

The bushes constitute a basic species of the ground Mediterranean ecosystems. Their role in the contribution of organic matter on the soil and prevention of erosion is well known. MARIOLA model was developed to study the behaviour of Mediterranean shrubs species from a predictable climatic change. This paper presents a model, inside the context of the MARIOLA, which deals with the reproductive phenomena of the phanerogam plants germination, flowering, fructification and dispersion of seeds. In this paper, it has presented a population submodel for the Cistus albidus L of the above mentioned process and its validation.
