Welcome to the IUCN/SSC Mediterranean Plant Specialist Group

The Mediterranean Plant Specialist Group (MPSG) was formed in 1995 as the Mediterranean Islands Plant Specialist Group and currently includes some thirty members. Its objectives are to evaluate and monitor changes in Mediterranean island plant diversity; to establish, co-ordinate and implement conservation Action Plans; and to promote sustainable conservation of plants and their habitats among decision makers and the public. The work of the MIPSG is part of IUCN’s activities in the Mediterranean (see www.iucn.org/places/medoffice).
