The savannahs as seen by the humanities and social sciences

The online humanities and social science review «», a place where the many manifestations of social life can be exchanged and described, has recently uploaded its 27th edition entitled ’Biodiversité(S): Conserver, gérer, étudier la biodiversité : quels apports de l’ethnologie ?’ (Biodiversity/ies: conserve, manage, study biodiversity: what are the implications of ethnology?).

One of the published articles is the result of the work of the anthropologist Marianne Palisse who, since 2012, has been studying in association with GEPOG various questions concerning the savannahs of French Guiana.

You can find her article via the following link:

Marianne Palisse, 2014. « Savanes de Guyane française : la biodiversité bousculée par la diversité culturelle »., Numéro 27 - Biodiversité(S) [en ligne].
