A floral survey was established over a 3-year period in 20 pasturelands. The biodiversity and the most represented floral species are presented. Agronomic evaluation of seed yield and its components of the five most popular grass species evidenced different bioagronomic characteristics and the possibility to provide a seed source for reseeding degraded pasturelands as a way to recover the natural equilibrium of native species in Mediterranean environments. Agronomic practices for seed production of floral species under risk of extinction represent a scientific tool to reduce the genetic erosion of floral species present in the degraded swards of the Mediterranean pasturelands.
