Pratiques paysannes d'exploitation des arbres et paysages forestiers du Haut Atlas marocain

Abstract : In the Moroccan Upper Atlas, the rural Berber societies have established endogenous management systems that maintain the availability of forest and pastoral resources in the long term, in particular through the practice of agdal. This consists in temporarily setting aside well-defined areasofgrazing land and establishing rules of usage for clearly identified eligible users. The rules devised and the resulting usage have a direct impact on tree shapes and the structure of forest stands. In this way,diversified landscapes are formed in rural forests that match the lifestyles and needs of the population, through the integration of production,conservation and management of unexpected events in a demanding upland environment against the social, political and spiritual background that is inherent to the local societies that devised these systems.
