La biodiversité en Algérie exposée à des menaces sérieuses - APS

La biodiversité en Algérie exposée à des menaces sérieuses - APS | AgroParisTech Ecosystèmes Tropicaux | Scoop.it

Des chercheurs ont exprimé mercredi à Alger leurs craintes d’assister à la dégradation progressive de la biodiversité qui est soumise à des menaces "assez sérieuses" en raison notamment de la surexploitation. Lors d’une rencontre sur les plantes aromatiques, médicinales et à parfum, Sahraoui Bensaïd, chercheur à la faculté des sciences biologiques de l’USTHB, a indiqué que la biodiversité est soumise à des menaces "assez sérieuses" à cause des actions de dégradation générées par les mauvaises pratiques d’exploitation et de gestion des milieux par l’homme. Dans son étude sur les plantes médicinales chez les Touaregs du Hoggar, il a identifié d’autres menaces comme la surexploitation de la végétation en raison de la production commerciale de bois et de charbon, la collecte anarchique de plantes médicinales et fourragères ainsi que le surpâturage et les techniques agricoles inappropriées ou encore des pratiques inappropriées en matière de tourisme.
