Camargue

Camargue

An Ecosystem Between Land and Water


L. Chazel, M. Chazel

Edition 2013

The Camargue is often depicted as an alluvial island clasped between the two arms of the Rhone and yet it is also a unique and very rich biological and ecological reality. The authors wish to restore as far as possible all the Camargue biodiversity. The geography, the natural environments, the flora and fauna of this region are beautifully illustrated (the work contains over 260 illustrations) and invite the reader to explore the Camargue over and beyond the clichés that has made it famous.

Calanques National Park

Calanques National Park

Regional Construction, Cooperation and Uses


V. Deldrève, P. Deboudt

Edition 2012

The Calanques National Park has been a project since the 1970s, but has now become official by decree in April 2012. It is the first second-generation national park (law of 2006).Given that it is coastal and located at the gates to Marseille, a city with a population of two million, its creation has crystallised crucial ecological and social issues. How can we define its borders at the scale of "natural" urban areas involved? How can we protect the biodiversity whilst preserving the cultural heritage? This book retraces the construction of the project by focusing on the consultation period involving all the stakeholders (economists, politicians, residents, users, etc.).
