Les services écosystémiques des espaces protégés urbains : ambivalence des conceptions de la nature sous-jacentes aux politiques de protection en Europe du Nord

Abstract : The term “ecosystem services” includes a set of ideas and very different realities. In Northern European societies, where social and environmental exemplariness is often put ahead, this notion is largely mobilized by political discourses and the rhetoric of urban marketing in order to think and promote urban durability. Asking, in concrete terms, what mean such ecosystem services in the Northern European metropolitan contexts allows considering critically the urban environmental policies. Specifically, we propose to study urban protected areas through the prism of ecosystem services, and vice versa. Indeed, explore the ambivalent relationships between ecosystem services and urban conservation policies allows to examine the real ecological benefit of using this concept. The utilitarian idea of nature that underlies them does it not lead astray the initial objectives of conservation ? Beyond, we question the ideological foundations, more or less compatible, of urban ecosystem services and urban conservation policies. Thus the values of urban nature and its conservation are better revealed, between intrinsic value deploying an ethic of protection and instrumental values assuming a socially concerned protection.
