Le lapin européen est une espèce dont la prolificité légendaire pourrait suffire à expliquer la formidable expansion à travers le monde. Pourtant, on dit rarement qu’Oryctolagus cuniculus est également sédentaire au dernier degré. Si on peut, sans nul doute, en certains lieux, classer le lapin parmi les espèces envahissantes, cela n’est dû qu’à l’assistance obstinée des humains. Les tribulations du lapin sont marquées de « captures », « rencontres » et « bifurcations », une collection d’épisodes pris entre invention et violence destructrice, qu’une logique linéaire ne permet pas de décrire. Elles sont pour nous un exemple type de ces proliférations qui s’échappent des multiples noeuds de relations hommes - techniques – nature et qui expriment la pluralité des modes d’existence du vivant.

This paper examines changes in the rural world through the transformations of territoriality in an historical trend of globalisation. Rural areas are more and more involved in large scale economical fluxes, ant this implies a reconstitution of local spaces. Ecologisation is not considered as a different trend but as a reflexive one that goes with globalisation. Three stages are described through thrre processes : fluxes, connections and social representations.. The first one is the modernisation trend of agriculture that reorganises traditional space into a grlobalised productive countryside. The second one is a first écologisation process that emphasises residentail amenities and use conflicts. Tha last one comes from the globalisation of ecology through new ecological concepts and new policies about which the paper suggests some assumptions. [less ▲]

The implementation of environmental protection policies in Flanders and Wallonia (Belgium) is investigated, looking at the stages of application and the roles of the actors involved. The factors which intervene in the implementation of a European policy, whose characteristics include reformulation at local level, are identified. Structural and political factors affecting change in agricultural and environmental policies are outlined, including regionalization and the division of responsibilities. The example of Belgium shows how it is important that each authority can redefine its own interests in defending the environment using its own resources and contacts. Implementation at local level implies a series of re-interpretations of each agri-environmental measure in the light of expectations and the reactions of land-users. [less ▲]
