Place et rôles de la nature dans la valeur de l’espace agricole. Analyse par groupes de discussion dans trois espaces ruraux de l’Ouest

Abstract : The ecological crisis, the peri-urban expansion, the back-to-the-land movement and the urbanization of minds have had effects on the place and the roles that nature, in its different meanings, hold in the factory of the value of agricultural land. The paper reminds the general relationship between agriculture, town and wild nature and sets the agricultural space as a natural space. From a corpus of 13 focus groups (farmers, farm women, citizens, landlords, municipal councillors) gathered in three regions (Brittany, Lower Normandy and Poitou-Charentes), an analysis grid seeks to characterize, in the collected discourses, the relationships between 9 types of objects at the crossing of the 3 categories «wild nature», «domestic nature» and «artifice» on the one hand, of the 3 categories of countryside described by P. Perrier-Cornet and B. Hervieu (2002) on the other hand: «nature», «resource» and «living environment». In conclusion, the paper argues that the values of nature linked to agricultural space depend less of the balance between these categories than of the possibility that it offers to hybridize them.
