A few thousand years long interaction between humans and their environment in Mediterranean basin has led to dissapearance of vast forested areas which in return disrupted the ecological balance. As a means of mitigating intensive erosion processes that started because of it at the beginning of 19th century reforestation with aleppo pine started, a plant that was very well adapted to the harsh condition of the karst areas. In the broader area of Šibenik, which is a part of the Mediterranean, aleppo pine grew only on the island of Krapanj, but emergence of new stands through reforestation program led to his invasive spreading. In the coastal parts new forests where used for turistical purposes and hotel areas and camps where built inside of them while in inner parts main objective of resorestation was the renewal of soil and return of autochthonous vegetaton of holm oak. Intensive spreading of aleppo pine changed microclimate and disturbed animal populations but there is a general lack of research concerning the effects of this species that is becoming more and more important.
