- Abstract:

The Saharan oases have therefore never been completely isolated territories. On the contrary, their situation of physical discontinuity, their insularity, has allowed them a particular connection to other inhabited territories, a measured but obligatory and essential connection: oases were—and are still for the most part—the sporadic nodes of a circulation network for humans and their processions (both biological and cultural), which network stretches from one continent to the next. A definitely connected Sahara: plants, animals, people and their knowledge and practices.
