Biodiversité, développement durable et Géographie.

Abstract : Protecting nature means, first of all, setting it outside the range of human influence. By emphasizing the problems of maintaining biodiversity, the advances made in ecology over the past few decades have brought the foregoing idea, which is still widespread, under question. Paradigms are shifting. Beyond any purely naturalistic analysis, the social sciences have opened new perspectives, in particular geography, which places biodiversity in a territorial context and thus takes in account the parties involved as well as social practices and issues. Talk about sustainable development is evidence of this trend, even though it sometimes serves as a cover for efforts to set nature aside in a reserve.
