About this book

Language: French

The Causses region in the south of the Massif Central of France offers a rich palette of grandiose landscapes, deeply marked by ancestral agropastoralism but also by the mineral character of its spaces, essentially limestone or dolomitic. This shows in the form of cliffs, cornices, rocks, rockeries, blockfields, scree slopes, old dry stone walls and gravel along the banks of the river. Despite difficult habitat conditions for living beings, a rich and diversified flora, which can be described as “extreme flora”, has adapted and expressed itself in these very particular environments. With this abundantly illustrated book, Christian invites us to share his passion and enthusiasm for this rich landscape and remarkable but fragile floral heritage which should be better understood and preserved.

Summary in French:
La région des Causses du sud du Massif central de la France offre une riche palette de paysages grandioses, profondément marqués par un agropastoralisme ancestral mais aussi par la minéralité de ses espaces, essentiellement calcaires ou dolomitiques. Cette minéralité transparaît sous la forme de falaises, corniches, rochers, rocailles, chaos rocheux, éboulis de pentes, vieux murs de pierres sèches et graviers des bords de rivière. Malgré des conditions difficiles d’habitat pour les êtres vivants, une flore riche et diversifiée, que l’on peut qualifier de « flore de l’extrême », s’est adaptée et s’exprime dans ces milieux très particuliers. Avec cet ouvrage abondamment illustré, Christian nous invite à partager sa passion et son enthousiasme pour ce riche patrimoine paysager et floristique, remarquable mais fragile, qu’il convient de mieux connaître et de préserver.
