About this book

Language: French

Camargue is an alluvial plain covering almost 150 000 hectares. It has been developed since ancient times, and is now a patchwork of particularly diverse, interlocking natural and artificial landscapes. This patchwork, which is often difficult to decipher at ground level, accounts for the very interesting fauna and flora in the region.

An introduction to the natural landscapes and to rice cultivation in the region is followed by lavishly illustrated sheets on 178 plants that grow in the rice fields of Camargue: weeds among the rice plants, but also plants that grow on the embankments and bunds that rice growers build to facilitate water circulation and to enable themselves to move around their plots. This book will be a tool for rice growers faced with the problem of weeding their crop, but will also be of interest to a broad readership interested in nature and its wealth.
