While Odonata (Dragonflies and Demoiselles), Rhopalocerans (Day butterflies) or Orthoptera (Locusts, Crickets, Grasshoppers) are starting to be well known in Pays de la Loire, this is not the case for many other groups for which the determination of species is often a specialist's business.
The wild flora includes more than 2000 species of flowering plants and ferns, and the essence of its interest lies in the plurality of its environments (coast, grove, marshes and peat bogs, forests, urban environment…). This heritage is fragile and changing, with nearly a quarter of species that are threatened and environments that evolve under the effect of planetary changes.
