The geographical situation of Spanish territory (mainland and islands) as well as the topography, climate and geological events occurring since the end of the Tertiary period to the early Quaternary, constitute some of the peculiarities that have conditioned the appearance in Spain of a particular Flora, the richest of the European continent from the quantitative point of view, and without any doubt, from an intrinsic point of view. The result of these factors and many others allow us, today, enjoy a plant heritage of extraordinary wealth.
