Turland, N., Phitos, D., Kamari, G. & Bareka, P. 2004: Weeds of the traditional agriculture of Crete. Willdenowia 34: 381-406.
The goal of this research project was to carry out a thorough floristic survey of weeds in the traditional agriculture of the South Aegean island of Crete, Greece. Fieldwork was carried out by the authors from 2.4.-7.5.2003. Fifty cultivated localities were surveyed, at which 2455 plant records and 483 herbarium gatherings were made. Living material was collected for cytological investigation at UPA. A relational database of the results (localities, taxa observed, herbarium specimens, living material) was created and is placed online as an electronic supplement. The collections and observations were critically evaluated, and a catalogue of the taxa recorded at each locality is provided here. Distributional notes are provided on significant records and selected weed species that are indicators of (obligate to) traditional agriculture.
