The network

Fourteen Zones Ateliers are actually recongized by CNRS (ZABR, ZAM, ZAS, ZAL, ZAPVS, ZAAR, ZAA, ZATA, ZAEU, ZAHWG, ZABrI, ZATU, ZAAJ and ZA PYGAR). A project (ZARG) is under development under CNRS umbrella around the Argonne region.

The Zones Ateliers network (RZA) is recognized by ALLENVI, as a Long-Term Experimentaion and Observation System for Research in Environment: the SOERE RZA.

In this context, the RZA organizes workshops of scientific reflection on transversal questions..


Coordination :

Vincent BRETAGNOLLE, Directeur de Recherche CNRS - Chargé de mission INEE pour les Zones Ateliers

Zone Atelier Bassin du Rhône (ZABR)

Zone Atelier Bassin de la Moselle (ZAM)

Zone Atelier Seine (ZAS)

Zone Atelier Loire (ZAL)

Zone Atelier Plaine et Val de Sèvre (ZAPVS)

Zone Atelier Armorique (ZAAR)

Zone Atelier Alpes (ZAA)

Zone Atelier Antarctique (ZATA)

Zone Atelier Environnementale Urbaine Strasbourg (ZAEU)

Zone Atelier Hwange (ZAHWG)

  • ZAHWG conducts a multi-disciplinary approach to a socio-ecological system centered on a protected area with a diversity of large mammals unique in the world and crucial issues of integration of conservation and rural development.
  • Geographical area : Sub-Saharan Africa (National Park of Hwange)
  • DirectorHervé FRITZ, Laboratoire Biométrie et Biologie Évolutive UMR CNRS 5558

Zone Atelier Brest-Iroise (ZABrI)

Zone Atelier Arc Jurassien (ZAAJ)

  • ZAAJ federates a network of research on the interactions between environment, society and dynamics of the socio-ecological systems of the Jura arc. She is particularly interested in the impacts of past and present climate and landscape changes on people and communities, and the relationship between environment, ecology and health.
  • Geographical area : Jura arc
  • Director : Daniel GILBERT, UMR CNRS 6249 Chrono-environnement

Zone Atelier Territoires Uranifères dans l’Arc Hercynien (ZATU)

Zone Atelier Pyrénées-Garonne (ZA PYGAR)

  • A PYGAR aims to study the spatial and temporal dynamics of socio-ecological systems (SSE). It studies the interactions (nature, kinetics) between social systems and ecological systems. PYGAR studies the spatial transitions within the upstream-downstream gradient of the Pyrenees or the Massif Central to the Garonne Plain. Scaling and modeling are based on the skills of ZA PYGAR laboratories in satellite image analysis. SSEs are treated at different times since the last glacial maximum until the present time.
  • Geographical area : all of the Garonne catchment area upstream of the Gironde estuary at La Réole station.

ZA project under CNRS umbrella: Zone Atelier Environnementale Rurale (ZA RG)

  • The objective of ZARG project is to understand the functioning and trajectories of this low-density socio-ecological system. This low density is at the same time an asset and a threat to the resilience and sustainability of these territories: if, on the one hand, anthropogenic pressure can decrease, on the other, low density can reduce the capacity to protect. the territory of environmental stresses. Yet rural environments provide an important part of the ecological goods and services on which society depends.
  • Geographical area: the territory of Argonne: forest massif, groves, cereal plains, wetlands, alluvial plains of the Aisne River and the Aire River, villages and small towns around
