About this book

Language: French

The Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) has played a leading role in the foundation of the Swiss National Park in 1914. The stakes were high: to create a fantastic outdoor laboratory to study the evolution of nature undisturbed by human influences. What do we know today of the development of this park? What has it brought to science? What lessons can we draw from this extraordinary experience?

Au Coeur de la Nature shows the diversity of research in the National Park since 1914 and summarizes the most remarkable results.
