The Olive Tree

The olive tree is the emblem of Mediterranean landscapes.This work blends social, biological and technical sciences to recount the story of a tree that has unceasingly alienated man through religion, food, agriculture and the economy. The olive tree is a symbol found in many ancient texts. The authors retrace its origin and its history. Although only of slight economic importance in France, the olive tree is tied to numerous tourist sites in Provence and Languedoc-Roussillon. A science is developing around products, their characterisation, tasting and potential frauds. This book also delves into "Mediterranean" diets, which have olive oil as a component.
