Mediterranean wooded grasslands are multipurpose systems that support high plant and animal
diversity levels and are habitats of European importance (i.e., 6310 – Dehesas with evergreen Quercus
spp.). Moreover, these systems offer a number of agro-ecosystem services such as forage production, soil
carbon sequestration, nutrient recycling and soil protection. The scattered trees enhance the ecological
complexity of grassland influencing the soil properties, the herbaceous layer diversity and composition
and the soil communities. Understanding how isolated trees influence the other components of the system is essential to comprehend their role supporting high levels of above and below ground biodiversity and ecosystem services.
