About this book

Language: French

The Mont Lozère, France, encompasses some 40,000 ha and peaks at nearly 1,700 m altitude. It is a geological whole, morphologically and climatically unique on the southern edge of the Massif Central in contact with the Causses, a group of limestone plateaus (700–1,200 m) in the Massif Central. The Cevennes National Park created in 1970 completely includes Mont Lozère. For several years, scientists and park authorities have initiated and developed inventories to measure biodiversity on all of its territory, and particularly on the non-vascular flora. The bryological flora inventory presents a particularly interesting facet, since, until now, this plant group has been very little researched in the Park, especially on the Mont Lozère. To fill this gap, three studies of one week each were conducted in 2001, 2002 and 2003 under the scientific authority of Cevennes National Park. These studies have been described briefly in two preliminary reports, one in 2002 on peatlands (Bardat et al., 2002) and in 2003 on the scree (Bardat and Boudier, 2003). This bulletin now reports the full results of the studies.

Summary in French:
Le massif du mont Lozère se développe sur 40 000 ha environ et culmine à près de 1 700 m d’altitude. Il constitue un ensemble géologique, morphologique et climatique original sur la bordure méridionale du Massif central au contact des Grands Causses. Le Parc national des Cévennes créé en 1970 inclut en totalité le mont Lozère. Depuis plusieurs années, les responsables scientifiques du Parc ont initié et développé des inventaires programmés concernant la biodiversité sur l’ensemble de son territoire et plus particulièrement sur la flore non vasculaire. Dans cette perspective, la flore bryologique représente un axe d’inventaire particulièrement intéressant dans la mesure où, jusqu’à présent, ce groupe végétal a été très peu étudié sur le territoire du Parc et tout spécialement sur le massif du mont Lozère. Pour combler cette lacune, trois campagnes d’une semaine chacune ont été menées en 2001, 2002 et 2003 sous l’égide du service scientifique du Parc national des Cévennes. Ces campagnes ont fait l’objet de deux rapports préliminaires succincts, l’un en 2002 sur les tourbières (Bardat et al., 2002) et un en 2003 sur les pierriers (Bardat et Boudier, 2003).
