About this book

Language: French

Biogeography is a discipline as old as science itself. While remaining anchored to its fundamentals, which are the study of the distribution of flora and plant landscapes and the factors influencing this distribution, it is increasingly at the interface of many disciplines of life and earth sciences, and the human and social sciences. Especially since it is now facing the questions raised by the conservation and management of areas, natural resources and biodiversity, and the new challenges and dangers of globalization. During the last 20 years the discipline has experienced a meteoric evolution and sprawling of terminology, of which this work is the witness.

The vocabulary of biogeography reflects not only the palette of plant landscapes of the planet, but also the diversity of disciplines which biogeographers call upon in their practice. Based on a vast body of literature, a multidisciplinary team of geographers, ethnobiologists, linguists and botanists assured control and drafting of this dictionary and has bourght together for the first time much of the terminology, more than 10 000 annotated definitions, used in the French practice of plant biogeography.

Summary in French:
La biogéographie est une discipline aussi ancienne que la Science elle-même. Tout en restant ancrée sur ses fondamentaux que sont l’étude de la répartition des flores et des paysages végétaux et celle des facteurs de cette répartition, elle est de plus en plus à l’interface de nombreuses disciplines des sciences de la vie et de la Terre ou des sciences humaines et sociales. D’autant plus qu’elle fait désormais face aux questions posées par la conservation de la nature et la gestion des territoires, des ressources naturelles et de la biodiversité, ainsi qu’aux nouveaux enjeux de la mondialisation, aux dangers de la globalisation. Elle a connu dans les 20 dernières années une évolution fulgurante et une effervescence terminologique, dont cet ouvrage est le témoin.

Le vocabulaire de la biogéographie reflète non seulement la palette des paysages végétaux de la planète, mais également la diversité des disciplines auxquelles les biogéographes font appel dans leur pratique. En s’appuyant sur le dépouillement d’un vaste corpus documentaire, une équipe pluridisciplinaire de géographes, ethnobiologistes, linguistes ou botanistes, a assuré le contrôle et la rédaction de ce dictionnaire regroupant pour la première fois la majeure partie de la terminologie en usage dans la pratique francophone de la biogéographie végétale, soit plus de 10 000 définitions accompagnées de commentaires.
