Siwa, Oasis of the Libyan Desert: The secret life of the gardens and their palm trees
Original title: Siwa, oasis du désert libyque: la vie secrète des jardins et de leurs palmiers
Facing a general public but an informed public, I choose to present briefly how oases work, but to insist on their island nature (i.e. as a node of a sSaharan network node), and to show how their agrobiodiversity — and especially the date palm biodiversity — is shaped by this nature.
