Abstract : In the Cap Bon peninsula, located in the north-eastern Tunisia, the forestation of the Menzel
Belgacem's dunes constitutes one of the first attempt of forest creating during the French
protectorate. From 1930, sands have been gradually stabilized and today the new forest came over
the sand deposits. The Dar Chichou's forest, more than 6000 adjoining hectares, represents an
striking example of Mediterranean dunal forest. Before all this study seek to draw up the balance
sheet of the interventions conducted by the forest services from the beginning of the 20th century.
The approach is based on the use of remote sensing data, compared with field information, for the
build-up of a landscape units map.
The Northern area of the Cap Bon, where the stamp of the coast is omnipresent, is characterized by
a fast evolution of the natural habitat and by heavy landscapes changes. Many projects are planned
and the society expectations are becoming insistent and often contradictory. Thus our thesis aim to
analyse the changes assigned to the landscapes features. The comparison of georeferenced and
multidate data allows to follow up the evolution of the rural landscape in the northern Cap Bon from
1900. It shows a sensitive change of the landscapes which illustrate itself by the progressive
forestation of the large dunal sling of Dar Chichou.
We endeavour to demonstrate the interest of such a methodology in reaching recommendation of
new terms management able to fit the various functions of the forest habitat.
