Words related to the world of the Iberian pig. “Q”

Dehesa biosphere reserve

Terminologies of words, related to the world of the Iberian pig. The “Q”.

Quercus (a word that comes from Latin), which also designated oak, cork and oak (trees belonging to the family of the fagáceas.) The different species of quercinea, such as holm oak and cork oak, have been very important in the dehesas of the Sierra de Huelva, Seville and Badajoz, for the excellent quality of its wood, its fruits (acorns) and its bark (cork in the case of the “alcornoque”).

The dehesas have been created for centuries by the clearing of the quercíneas of the Mediterranean forest, by a responsible agribusiness activity and by the hand of man. That, with a cultural knowledge, has respected the natural values, livestock exploitation and coexistence with wild species.

In 2002, UNESCO declared the Biosphere Reserve, the dehesas of the Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche, together with the northern sierra of Seville and the Sierra de Hornachuelos.
