Abstract : The Bouconne forest near Toulouse. An essay of an integrated mapping of a woodland area.Grown west of Toulouse on the highest alluvial terraces built up by the Garonne river, theBouconne woodland area is commonly known as a forest when it is an oak taillis dottered withpine trees. The spatial distribution of the various woodland geofacies and the growth of theaggregate vegetal biomass as well depend on one hand on the soils' nature (and mainly on theirdrainage) and on the other hand on the economic management of the woodland and the variouscrisis that it met (wood fires, invasions of parasites or too frequent cutting down of timber on thesame plot).
