With the exception of the fields of banking, insurance and notary, this book will include entries in the following fields (listed here in alphabetical order ...):
agronomy - anthropology - archeology - architecture - art of living - fine arts - biology - culture - law - ecology - economy - environment - genetics - geography - geology - history - - linguistics - museology - paleontology - heritage studies - political science - nature conservation - sociology - tourism
The definitions are not intended to be normative, but must reflect the different uses and meanings of each term: to do this, they will cross the eyes of the various disciplines concerned and will be accompanied by explanatory notes, encyclopedic and / or critical.
A system of references to other entries allows the reader to initiate a reflection by semantic fields (the methodology followed is inspired by the one that has been adapted for 20 years for the two editions of the plant biogeography dictionaries).
A proofreading, collective rewriting
The editorial team (associating anthropologists, ethnobiologists, geographers, linguists ...) meets once a month for a review and a collective rewrite of definition proposals and to enrich the corpus of entries (from a lexical watch in books, academic works, technical or administrative reports, the media and the web).
