Trees in the urban landscape of Athens
Maria Papaioannou, agricultural

The city of Athens has a variety of vegetation types in its parks, roads and sidewalks. This vegetation is mainly consisted of native Mediterranean species, which have been adapted to the conditions of the Mediterranean climate, especially the long, dry and hot summer. Additionally, in certain places, other non-native, «imported» species can be found which were introduced in the past and have now become part of the city vegetation. The balance between the native and non-native species has nowadays changed and this might have certain ecological implications as far as foreign species are sometimes very demanding in terms of additional energy needed for their survival.
