La notion de paysage-type
- lecteur/chargé de cours, Les Vemes 4, 2534 Orvin, Switzerland
Abstract. Type landscapes are often used in Geography – in teaching as well as in research –, although the term has not yet been generally discussed. The term of landscape itself is rather controversial, its use is sometimes carefully avoided. This paper is a contribution to the discussion dealing with a choice of aspects covered by the litterature in French, in German and in English. However, the problem of the typology of landscapes cannot be left out, as a type landscape can only set an example or represent a landscape type.
