Paper short abstract:

The paper presented will try to qualify how the new "biodiversity regime" has been since twenty years a fundamental booster of taxonomy. The study will be carried out at two levels : the new global arena, and the international program of global inventory « La planète revisistée » (leaded by MHN).

Paper long abstract:

How the new "biodiversity regime" has been a fundamental booster for the revival of taxonomy? We study this « politicisation procès » trying to identify the logics of new framings of the discipline through "biodiversity", the main international actors who are at the frontline, the main political arenas who have emerged, and the ways this process affect scientist's practices. The argumentation will be based on the observation of two different levels:on one hand the new global intiatives (like GTI, GBIF, EDIT, until IPBES), and on the other hand the international program of global inventory « La planète revisistée » (leaded by MHN) we had the opportunity to investigate within a collective project.
