L'axe Saône-Rhône: éléments pour une anlyse prévisionnelle des interactions Homme-Milieu naturel dans la région Rhône-Alpes

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A study has been made of the interaction between Man and the natural environment in the Saone-Rhone valley, a wet borderline milieu in space and time. A map (1/25,000 th and 1/50,000 th) of the vegetation has been composed, with various quantitative data about each of the two banks: percentages of land use, population, energy consumption (domestic, industrial, transportation), energy conversion. An interpretation of these various data has been undertaken, with schemes making it possible to grasp the factors of human action in this environment, as well as relations with certain natural or seminatural components. More than a discovery of the Saone-Rhone valley, this study should be viewed as a contribution toward a methodological approach to an inventory and modelization, permetting a better understanding of technosphère/biosphère interactions. This is a condition sine qua non for any planning program, in contradiction with post and present practices. (JPD).
