La naturalité à petit pas. Evolution des regards et des pratiques sur une notion émergente

Abstract : While the forest represents nature in French people’s minds, the notion of naturalness is far less familiar to them and appears to be related to “the wild” .H owever, certain signals show that these representations are evolving: deadwood is now tolerated, and even promoted for its ecological relevance by foresters as well as by the general public; spaces devoted to naturalness, such as integral biological reserves, are more and more numerous in mainland France . However, the reasons for this support remain ambivalent .S ome foresters and forest users do it to avoid being accused of environmental negligence, while others are really convinced of the interest of leaving spaces unmanaged for the sake of biodiversity and of forest resilience to climate change . In both cases, naturalness is gradually and willy-nilly regaining importance in our forest ecosystems and our representations of forests .
