Le territoire comme palimpseste lentique : une vision spatiale géohistorique des interactions hommes-milieux-plans d’eau

Abstract : Presently water frameworks, whether it is those European or French one, undervalue the part of societies in artificial lentic landscapes modelling. By a geohistorical approach which is pioneer in limnology, palimpsest characteristic of French limnic territories can be demonstrated. It is the fruit of many interactions between humans, environment and waterbodies. The use of three national inventories (1793, 1834 and 2005) allows bettering understanding the pond’s concentrations (areas and numerous) since the end of the 18th century, while engaging to explain the quantitative and qualitative variations noticed. The maps stemming from those analysis, for the most part unpublished, bring, at regional scale, valued information’s out the temporal continuity of pond’s localizations, as the surfacic and numeric superiority of the western central part of France (administrative regions of “Centre-Val-de-Loire”, “Pays-de-la-Loire” and “Limousin”) since two centuries in spite of their tumultuous histories, even though they put up only two important sites (the “Sologne” and the “Brenne”). The size of the pond’s dispersal is in this way demonstrated over time and not only actually as some organisms of water’s management affirm, indicating a human/water relationship sociologically and economically fixed in a territory.
