Our dependance on Nature Let the biodiversity talk !

Since their emergence, human societies have had to face a dual challenge: to depend entirely on natural resources and to belong to ecosystems that provide the services essential to their well-being.

In spite of this double dependence, our societies, especially the so-called industrial ones, developed from the end of the 19th century as if they no longer belonged to these natural systems, drawing from them their resources (air, water, food, fibers, energies etc …) but largely ignoring the way they work.

Modernity forces us to review this positioning and to re-enter these processes resulting from 4 billion years of evolution.

Forest Environments Land maintained by very hairy landscapers ...

Trees can be divided into two broad categories: Hardwoods and conifers. Their characteristics make it possible to differentiate them: some feed on their sap, the others on their resin; some lose their leaves in the winter (they are deciduous), the others keep them (they are evergreen).

They also differ in their social structures. When a forest settles, the individuals are, in most cases, in competition but can develop a common strategy, especially for hardwoods.

Horizontal and vertical competition determines the shape of the crown and its structure. Conifers seek to gain height to try to have the best light rays. They thus undergo a vertical competition. Hardwoods will have a predisposition to organize on horizontal competition. They tend to spread in width!

Aquatic Environment: 3 Reconstituted Wet Zones A need to diversify habitats

One of the most important climatic factors is rainfall: water is at the same time an indispensable element for the development of living beings, (animals and plants) and it is also an exceptional living environment in which the greatest diversities may be met. In metropolitan France alone, one-third of the 277 known breeding bird species are subservient to wetlands. (O. Cizel, Protection and Management of Wet and Aquatic Spaces, 2010).

Its condensation and evaporation are the keys to the water cycle, the source of all life, including ours.

Wetlands are essential for the proper functioning of ecosystems for at least three reasons:

  • Buffers during large floods, they behave like sponges, storing surplus in winter periods that they release during dry periods,
  • Natural filters with high purifying power, that the most modern techniques have a hard time to match,
  • Dry land water supply sources,
  • A true biodiversity hotel: nesting place for birdlife, nesting for insects especially odonates, living environment for aquatic organisms …

The Open Environments High-perched or feet on the ground ...

These environments are characterized by the absence or rarity of large plant covers, trees and shrubs.

They are diversified: meadows of course but also moors, rocks and cliffs, each representing a specific biotope for part of the fauna and flora.
