About this book

Language: French

This beautifully illustrated field guide enables you to easily identify the tracks and signs left by a wide variety of mammal and bird species found in Britain and Europe, covering behaviors ranging from hunting, foraging, and feeding to courtship, breeding, and nesting. Introductory chapters offer detailed drawings of footprints and tracks of large and small mammals, which are followed by sections on mammal scat, bird droppings, and the feeding signs of animals on food sources such as nuts, cones, and rose hips. Tracks and Signs of the Animals and Birds of Britain and Europe then describes specific mammal species, providing information on size, distribution, behavior, habitat, and similar species, as well as more specific detail on tracks and scat. Distribution maps are also included.

This indispensable field guide covers 175 species of mammals and birds, and features a wealth of stunning color photos and artwork throughout.

Summary in French:
Si la majorité des oiseaux sont diurnes et facilement observables, les mammifères sont plus discrets et ne sortent qu’au crépuscule ou à la nuit. Mais tous les animaux laissent des traces comme une empreinte de patte, une plume tombée, des marques de dents sur une branche, un trou dans la terre, une odeur singulière, etc. Reconnaître ces traces transforme vos promenades en véritable jeu de piste.

Si les traces nous apprennent beaucoup sur les animaux, connaître les animaux nous permet de trouver plus facilement leurs traces. Aussi, cet ouvrage met l’accent sur toutes les traces et indices mais aussi sur la détermination des espèces : description, mode de vie, habitat, répartition, etc.

Ainsi, le promeneur attentif pourra-t-il facilement la présence ou le passage d’un animal, le reconnaître et le suivre à la trace…
