PRODUCTION BIOLOGY OF MEDITERRANEAN LAMIACEAE SPECIES IN THE TEMPERATE BELT
Hungary occupies the centre of the Carpathian basin. As to her climate, it is the continental climate that predominates. Among the approximately 2200 flowering species 16.9 % belong to the Pontusian-Mediterranean-Submediterranaen floristic elements (4). Among them 73 species are member of the Lamiaceae-family, 24 species are considered as medicinal plants. 63 % of the latter are medicinal plants.
Justified by the above fact, the aim of our contribution is to characterize both native and introduced species in view of their prospective cultivation.
