Francis Hallé calls us to find our place in Nature

From the point of view of a botanist and specialist in forests – especially tropical forests – how does all this manifest itself? What is the relationship between human health and biodiversity?
Primary forests first appeared on our planet in the Devonian Period, 380 million years ago. They were very tall, magnificent and abundant with animal and plant life.
Our association was born out of serendipitous encounters in the summer of 2018 and the multiple connections established during the following months around the necessity of restoring a primary forest in Western Europe.
I was born on April 15, 1938 in Seine-Port (77), France, and studied at La Sorbonne University in Paris. I have two scientific specializations: the ecology of tropical forests and the architecture of their trees.
