L'intégration de la biodiversité dans l'espace urbain : contraintes et perspectives pour le paysagiste concepteur

Abstract : Scientists' warnings about the probable extinction of tens of thousands of species are becoming increasingly threatening. The possible loss of biodiversity is to be feared in the coming decades. In this context, the action of Man on his environment and his share of responsibility in the disappearance of fauna and flora species is called into question. Urban development impacts biodiversity at several levels and the consumption of agricultural or natural lands amplifies this phenomenon. This thesis attempts to identify the different facets of the relationship between fauna, flora and man in the city, while addressing the legal and technical aspects relating to environmental study and the protection of natural areas. In order to identify the specificities of the urban space, a synthesis approach has been initiated around planning, which guides development policies. The identification of a legal absence in the context of a development operation below the regulatory thresholds makes it possible to foresee a new way of approaching urban projects for the landscape designer. The integration, from the design stage, of ecological aspects relating to biodiversity seems to be a first step towards compensating for the current loss of species. The extension of this approach leads us to believe that awareness-raising and communication work must be carried out in order to support the integration of biodiversity into all urban development projects.
