Collate and analyze data on plant distribution and abundance to identify important plant areas within Lebanon. Using this data, liaise with land owners to establish three micro-reserves at Ehmej, Sarada and Baskinta in Lebanon to secure the long-term survival of these sites and their species. Each of these sites harbors rare and threatened plant species and are under pressure from activities including quarrying and other unsustainable practices.
