The dry forest is currently the most threatened of the Caledonian biomes. It is truly the heart of the Caledonian ecosystems, which are known world wide for their exceptional biodiversity. The terms “dry forest” or “sclerophyllous forest” are given to forest formations that develop in a dry climate (less than 1100mm of rain per year). In comparison, the rest of the island of Grande Terre receives about 2500mm of rain per year. The Caledonian dry forests are found on the west end of New Caledonia and extend to up to 300 meters à 400m above the coast. They are often found on sedimentary rock, and occasionally on basaltic rock. For about six months each year, they are subject to a dry season with drying trade winds. ...

DG Fisheries And Maritime Affairs is the Directorate-General responsible for the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and for developing a future maritime policy for the EU at the European Commission. The CFP covers all fishing activities, the farming of living aquatic resources, and the processing and marketing of fisheries products, on the legal basis of Article 33 (ex 39) of the Treaty establishing the European Community. Since the first decisions adopted in 1970, the CFP has been through many changes, and its current form centres on four main areas: the conservation and management of marine resources, fisheries relations and agreements with non-member countries and international organisations, structural measures, and the common market organisation for fishery and aquaculture products. The major challenge facing the CFP today is to strike a sustainable balance between available marine resources and their exploitation. ... [Information of the supplier]
