La biodiversité : avec ou sans l’homme ?

Biodiversity: with or without man?

Reflections of an ecologist on protecting nature in France.


C. Lévêque

Edition 2017

Contrary to certain perceived ideas, man has not destroyed the biological diversity in Metropolitan France but has transformed and enriched it. Deforestation, agriculture, developments of water courses and wetlands and introductions of species have created artificial environments, managed for our varied uses. Up to what point can we control the dynamics of this nature, subject to a variety of constraints such as new agricultural practices, urbanisation and global warming? Is not the biodiversity governed as much by the expectation of citizens as by scientific ecology?
