Quarry rehabilitation: a case study

2014-5-15  reclamation project was conducted in a limestone quarry within the Serra da Arribida Natural Park (Portugal), one example of well-preserved Mediterranean vegetation in Europe. We compared the revegetation of 5 abandoned platforms sequentially revegetated over the last 15 years, at 3 year intervals. The successive revegetation of each platform resulted in distinct plant communities, differing in age and cover. This allowed the evaluation of establishment and growth of introduced species as well as the succession of spontaneous species and stabilisation of natural vegetation. The evolution of soil characteristics was also evaluated as well as the contribution of different species to soil formation on the platforms. The results obtained allowed us to recommend strategies and to establish criteria for evaluation of the success of the revegetation
