Abstract
Phytosociological study of a part of the Burgundian Loire flood-plain : the "ile de la Crevee". - After a presentation of the main natural features of the Bourbonnais Loire valley (geographical situation, climate, flora and v egetation), authors looked into the vegetal mosaic of the site "ile de la C revee" (Nievre). They noticed 15 main vegetation units. These ones illustra te both evolutionary series existing in Burgundian Loire going from sandban ks' pioneer formations to climax vegetation stage such as ash-elm grove. A cartographic representation of these diverse units has been done. In other respects, the site's interest has been demonstrated by the presence of seve ral rare and even protected taxa and by the heritage Value of different veg etation units. Moreover a vegetation comparative cartographic analysis show ed a slowing down of the fluvial activity, generative force of ligerian eco systems.
