All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory on the territory of the Mercantour National Park

2008 – 2010

This project seeks to improve knowledge of the biological diversity of two protected areas. Additional inventories have been implemented for the past several years, in particular for the smaller groups.

The partnership entered into by PNM, PNAM and the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle de Paris over the past few years, is aimed at giving another dimension to these inventories. The purpose of the project is to carry out systematic inventory of biodiversity throughout the entire territory of these two natural parks.
