Mont Ventoux - MAB

Biosphere reserve
Mont Ventoux

Introduction

A real summary from the Alps to the Mediterranean, the Mont Ventoux Biosphere Reserve is organised around the "giant of Provence", characterised by an impressive biological telescoping system. Habitats and species of Mediterranean and Alpine origin are present side by side, due to a high gradient of altitude on the one hand and high contrasts between the southern and northern slopes on the other hand.

Mont Ventoux is a land of contrasts due to its altitude (1909 m) and its geographical location between the temperate and Mediterranean world. Thus, the massif presents an astonishing diversity of environments, sheltering many plant and animal species, some of which are truly rare.
