A significant amount of Herbaceous species provide to be an increasing of total organic matter depending on shrub intensity in the maquis vegetation. Therefore, the yearlong mineral contents of these Herbaceous species and their importance in terms of goat feeding were investigated at this vegetation.

Located in the western point of Turkey, forests and shrublands are important for the island of G�kceada. Almost all of the pasture surfaces are covered mainly with Sarcopoterium spinosum L., a common weed which has intensive thorns to makes it harder to be consumed even for the local sheeps and goats of G�kceada, being main cause of inefficiency for the island pastures.

In the Región de Aysen, Chile, Nothofagus antarctica (ñirre or Antarctic beech) forms puré forests called shrubby beech forests and secondary mixed shrub of anthropogenic origin. The aim of this work is to characterize the insect fauna associated to the foliage of Antarctic beech forests and scrublands in the Baker river basin. Insects were collected in spring (October 2006) and summer (January 2007), in five beech forests and 10 scrub patches from latitudes 47°2' S - 72°48' W to 47°15' S - 73° W. Six orders of insects were identified, being Coleóptera the most diverse.

This work is settled in the context of the Project "Characterization, Cartography and Evaluation of Spanish pastures" (INIA-CCAA OTOO-037-C17). Results of the characterization, cartography and evaluation by means of the phytocenologic and cartographic units established by authors, the II National Forestry Inventory (DGCN, 1996) and the Forestry Map of Spain (DGCN, 2001) are presented.

Density and distribution of red deer and roe deer in relation to habitat structure and feed sources was studied using simple faeces transects and monitoring plots during winter in a floodplain forest along the Morava River, Czech Republic. Deer densities detected on the plots and parallel simple faeces transects were comparable, so we used the faeces transects, thus enabling us to gather data from a larger part of the studied area. Densities of both species were relatively high (9.6 and 7.0 ind./square km for red and roe deer, resp.).

This study was conducted during the period of April 2005 to April 2007 to determine the distribution of the shrub species in maquis in the district of Erdemli, near the Taurus Mountains. The experimental design had three different altitudes (0- 400 m, 400-800 m and over 800 m) and in two geographical sites (north and south) was determined according to sampling method with no plots. Thirty eight shrub species were found in 18 different research locations chosen on different altitudes and sites. The distribution of species showed a variation depending on the altitudes.

The current issue of Unasylva takes a long look at the relationship of forestry with food security, and asks the question, ''How can forestry development programmes and activities become as relevant as possible in ensuring economic and physical access to food by all people at all times?" In the lead article, M. Hoskins sets out the actual and potential contributions of forestry to food security, and suggests practical strategies for the incorporation of food security components in forestry development activities.
