About this book

Language: French

Reflects upon the increasing link between `protected' nature in the Galapagos archipelago and its connection to a world market characterised by commercialisation. Grenier states that this `unnatural conservation' is having catastrophic effects on the ecosystems and inhabitants of the archipelago, and makes a broad-based reflection on the position of man in nature and pleads for geodiversity.
