Abstract

The steppe-like character of the Causses region of Lozère means that this area contains habitats and species of international interest, although their long-term existence is threatened. Effective conservation of these areas requires an understanding of the dynamics of the agro- pastoral system. Study of work being undertaken in the context of the Life-Nature programme and of research on livestock systems allows the two approaches to be linked and the level of investigation or organisation to be specified. Finally, the different approaches are compared to offer guidelines for further reflection on the management of open landscapes and on methodological improvements which might be made.
