Céréales dans un dispositif expérimental construit à Ittenheim, en Alsace, pour tester en milieu semi-naturel contrôlé l’efficacité de différentes associations de cultures dans la création d’un habitat favorable au hamster d’Europe, "Cricetus cricetus". Cette espèce décline en France où elle n'est présente qu'en Alsace. La santé des populations dépend fortement des cultures agricoles qui servent pour son habitat et son alimentation. Une des causes identifiées de son déclin est la culture intensive des céréales, très développée en Alsace. La reconstitution d'un habitat favorable passe donc par une adaptation des pratiques agricoles. Les recherches menées en milieu semi-naturel contrôlé se doublent de lâchers dans des parcelles agricoles expérimentales d’individus provenant d'élevages, afin de renforcer les effectifs des foyers de population.
