Invasive plant species in Israel’s natural areas: Distribution, stages of invasion, degrees of ecological threat and a tool for prioritizing control of invasive plant populations
This research addresses the issue of alien invasive and naturalized plant species in natural and semi-natural areas in Israel. Previous research on alien plant taxa in Israel focused on agriculture weeds (Dafni & Heller, 1980,1990), whereas botanical notes and surveys (Danin, 2000, 2004) only mentioned the presence of some alien taxa without further descriptions of their areas of occurrence, the size of their populations and their various stages of invasion. Therefore, there was a need for a detailed study on alien plant taxa that occur, and in numerous cases invade, natural and semi-natural areas in Israel. Moreover, no study has yet attempted to determine which plant taxa and what particular populations should be targeted and prioritized for control in natural areas throughout the country.

Underground Mining of Aggregates for the Building and Road-Paving Industry
It is customary to plan for the provision of raw materials for building and paving roads for a span of 40 or 50 years, and that is due to their economic importance and the necessity of ensuring their accessibility on a continuous and unobstructed basis. An optimal system of planning, working in the surroundings of a free market and a developing economy, aims to offer quantities of raw materials for building and road paving that are double or triple the expected demand for a given period of planning.
