About this book

Language: French

Guide Illustré de la Flore de Vanoise is an illustrated guide designed by the teams of the Vanoise National Park, France. It is very accessible and easy to use enabling everyone to identify the plants most regularly encountered in the Vanoise. 450 species are covered with abundant illustrations and short descriptions as well as notes on ecology, history of naming, traditional uses, folklore etc.

The Vanoise massif is known for its magnificent landscapes, its glaciers and the richness of its natural heritage. There are more than 1700 wild plants there, i.e. a third of the flora of France on less than 0.5% of the national territory.

This exceptional diversity is explained by the variety of natural environments, themselves linked to variations in altitude and exposure, as well as the nature of the geological substrate. It is in Vanoise that the most important processions of arctic-alpine plants are found with species such as Carex glacialis, Juncus arcticus and Tofieldia borealis.

Summary in French:
Le massif de la Vanoise est connu de tous les passionnés de montagne pour ses paysages magnifique, ses glaciers et la richesse de son patrimoine naturel. On y rencontre plus de 1700 plantes sauvages, soit un tiers de la flore de France sur moins de 0,5 % du territoire national !

Cette diversité exceptionnelle s’explique par la variété des milieux naturels, eux-mêmes liés aux variations d’altitude, et d’expositions, ainsi qu’à la nature du substrat géologique. C’est en Vanoise que se trouvent les plus importants cortèges de plantes arctico-alpines avec des espèces comme la
Laîche des glaciers, le Jonc arctique et la Tofieldie boréale.

Ce guide illustré conçu par les équipes du Parc national de Vanoise est très accessible et facile d’utilisation. Il permet à tous de pouvoir identifier les plantes rencontrées le plus régulièrement sur le territoire de la Vanoise. Pour plus de 450 espèces ce livre fournit des informations pour les reconnaître, notamment grâce à son abondante illustration et de courtes descriptions. Il apporte de nombreuses informations sur l’écologie des espèces, des anecdotes sur leur nom, leurs usages, la mythologie, etc.

Du rose du rhododendron au bleu du chardon des Alpes ou de la gentiane en passant par le blanc des Edelweiss, vous en prendrez plein les yeux !
