Review:

Kermes oak shrubland (Quercus coccifera L.) is one of the main types of Mediterranean shrubland in Spain. It is of special importance because of the size of the surface area it occupies ant the functions it carries out in their difficult environment: protection against erosion, edaphogenesis, regeneration after fires, fodder and shelter for wild and domestic animals, etc. The study comprises two aspects. Firstly, all the information existing on the species was collected, compiled and synthesised, especially in order to facilitate handling. Secondly, we tried to make advances and open up new perspectives for research in certain areas which have not been studied in depth or are not well known but which we consider of special interest for management. These include: -The temperament of the species according to its phytoclimatic, edaphological, lithological characteristics. –The typology of kermes oak shrubland in Spain. –the description of typical structures of these shrubland. –The phenological cycle of the kermes oak. –The response of these communities to fire. –Their natural regeneration systems (sexual and vegetative) and artificial systems (seeding and planting). –The biomass estimation of each component: aboveground, below, browse and litterfall. Taking into account all the studies carried out, possible management methods for kermes oak shrubland were analysed
