La biodiversité : avec ou sans l’homme ?


La biodiversité : avec ou sans l’homme ?

Réflexions d’un écologue sur la protection de la nature en France


Christian Lévêque

Author
Edition 2017

Biodiversity: with or without man?
Reflections of an ecologist on protecting nature in France.

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?
