This book is a unique and essential tool for understanding the natural heritage of the Orne region.
Published in April 2016.
This atlas represents 30 years of painstaking observation throughout the Orne region. Each local area has been surveyed several times by a team of more than 180 naturalists, coordinated by François Radigue.
A unique and essential tool for understanding the natural heritage of the Orne, the Atlas reveals the unsuspected richness of local flora and fauna, and the need to preserve
this fragile environment. It can be used as a guide in the implementation of protected areas of the Grenelle Environment, and for the discovery of natural sites.
The beautiful watercolors of Yves Doux are a tribute to
the Orne’s biodiversity.
The atlas encourages those interested in our natural heritage to share their observations.
