L'évaluation des sites dans les remembrements ruraux. L'exemple du remembrement du Gerny (Rochefort)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



An assessment of natural sites is nowadays required among the studies to realise before land consolidation. On the Gerny plateau, located between the towns of Rochefort and Marche, each landscape constituant (ecotope) has been submitted to a detailed inventory of phanerogamic plants| nesting birds were recorded by square km. The floristic diversity amounts to 425 species| 73 bird species have been observed for a total area of 1627 ha. The data were weighed according to both a local and a regional rarity scale and the results ranked into five classes of value. Combining the ornithological and botanical values by means of the VAN DER MAAREL formula yields a global ecological assessment for each of the 353 ecotopes present in the land consolidation area. The methodology is discussed and replaced into the more general context of "country renovation".
