Aims Studying plant ecological succession provides insights into the spatiotemporal processes underlying community assembly and is of primary importance for restoration ecology. We investigate here colonization events and local community assembly over an original primary succession occurring on roadcuts after roadwork. For this, we addressed both t...
Article
Based on concrete examples gathered from the Mediterranean region, this article shows why restoration ecology around the Mediterranean Basin must go beyond ecological science to embrace a contrasting local vision which integrates social and political realities. By taking into account the growing gap between the northern and southern/eastern shores...
Chapter
Full-text available
Malgré les efforts de protection de l’environnement, les milieux naturels et les espèces ont dans bien des cas été dégradés ou dévastés généralement par l’urbanisation, la surexploitation des ressources naturelles ou la destruction directe. Face à ces constats regrettables, il existe une nouvelle discipline, la restauration écologique, qui offre au...
Article
In terms of restoration planning, the analysis of natural regeneration processes represents a valuable starting point for the selection of suitable species to be used. This paper aims to identify colonizing key species among the pioneer vegetation of limestone quarries in Lebanon, to identify potential restoration strategies in terms of reconstitut...
Article
Euphorbia nicaeensis All. is a Mediterranean herbaceous perennial species that flourishes in different environments and successional stages. Sampled from a population in the Herault department (France), adult plants displayed three types of variation in the architecture of the inflorescence axes. The relative proportions of the three types in the d...

Restoration ecology is an emerging science dealing with applied ecology and aiming at “helping nature to recreate itself”. This comprehensive paper presents the findings and main results related to the analysis of natural vegetation dynamics on abandoned limestone quarries in Mediterranean environment. It aims to answer three basic questions: where...
Article
Abstract Study of germination using fresh seeds and seeds from an aerial seed bank of a young Verbascum phlomoides population revealed the existence of primary dormancy that blocks immediate germination and of substantial variations in the subsequent germination capability. The heterogeneity of desynchronized individual responses in a species with...

Des inventaires de terrain (flore, strates végétales et régénération) ont été associés a une analyse diachronique de la végétation basée sur l’analyse de 6 photographies aériennes prises entre 1946 et 1996, dans un Système d’Information Géographique composé de 497 polygones représentant une superficie d’étude de 269 ha. En seulement un demi siècle,...
Article
Des charbons de bois, témoins d'anciens feux, ont été découverts dans des dolines de la partie asylvatique ou déforestée des Grands Causses subméditerranéens. Les premières datations AMS 14C ont été effectuées sur des charbons de Pinus cf. sylvestris ; elles couvrent la période 4805-2990 BP. Ceci est la preuve du développement de forêts de pins à l...

Somatic embryogenesis in Hevea is stimulated when the embryogenesis induction medium contains maltose, rather than glucose, fructose, or sucrose, in equimolarity (Blanc et al., 1999). Kinetic analyses were carried out on various physiological and biochemical indicators over the 8 weeks that the induction phase then expression of somatic embryogenes...

Human activities greatly affect the environment causing its degradation. Urban development and road networks construction cause main impacts on ecosystems and particularly on vegetation cover: road constructions induce complete degradation of the vegetation cover and often leaves a bare land, sometimes without even a soil cover. Reconstitution of v...
Article
Ce travail analyse la contribution des plantes grimpantes, ligneuses et herbacées, à la biodiversité des îlots forestiers du sud du Togo. Sur la base d’un inventaire floristique général (649 espèces) couvrant 17,5 ha dans 53 îlots, 207 espèces de lianes, herbacées grimpantes et arbustes grimpants ont été recensées, soit 32 % de la flore (représenta...
Article
This study examines the interpopulation, interannual and individual variation in Helichrysum stoechas L., a perennial species that colonizes disturbed habitats in the Mediterranean region. The phenotypic variation in five populations was studied. Characters such as plant height and volume, numbers of capitula and flowers, weight of achenes and germ...

Inventories of trees and lianas were performed at a 13-year interval (1979–1992) in an evergreen forest in north-east Gabon. The number of trees decreased while their basal area and species richness increased. In contrast, both the richness and density of lianas decreased. Lianas with active climbing mechanisms were the main types to disappear.

La progression du pin sylvestre et du pin noir se fait à partir de l'écotone entre le causse boisé et le causse nu des géographes et à partir de la bordure nord du causse. L'analyse des processus de reproduction, de dissémination et d'installation permet en partie d'expliquer cette structure. Il est difficile de prévoir la progression du pin dans l...
Article
The revegetation of lands degraded by human activities appeals to the use of wild species. Seeds are collected then multiplied for use on several sites to revegetation. This study combines data obtained on natural populations and in experimental conditions. It shows that one of two studied species (Helichrysum stoechas) varies in growth within a re...
Article
The growth under controlled conditions of plantlets of six taxa belonging to the Teucrium lusitanicum Schreb. (Labiatae) complex of the Mediterranean basin was analysed. The results indicate strong proximity of the taxa of the T. lusitanicum complex following a recent adaptive radiation. Work was carried out on two different substrates, making it p...
