Cumulative number and area of nationally designated sites (under all IUCN management categories) in France over time
Only France's mainland territory is considered here, overseas departments and territories are not included.
The surface area that is taken into account here is that existing in the year the site was designated. This surface area may
have changed later on (decreasing or increasing) but this is not reflected in the graph.
