About this book

Language: French

This is the original French version of Turtles of the World.

From the familiar painted turtle basking on a log to the majestic long-lived giant tortoises, turtles are among the most fascinating animals on the planet. For many years Franck Bonin, Bernard Devaux, and Alain Dupré have traveled the world together to study turtles in their natural habitats. In this complete guide to the world's nearly 300 species of turtles, the authors reveal intimate, little-known details of these intriguing reptiles in their native habitats: what they eat, where they live, how they behave, and when and where they lay their eggs.

Summary in French:
L’ouvrage présente d’abord les caractéristiques générales des tortues (biologie, éthologie, écologie, conservation), puis décrit chaque espèce. Critères d’identification, répartition, mode de vie sont abordés en détail, et la question de la protection est traitée dans tous les cas où l’espèce subit des pressions écologiques. Les espèces sont illustrées par des photographies et une carte qui permet de visualiser rapidement sa localisation. Les noms anglais sont indiqués, ainsi que, très souvent, les noms espagnols, italiens, allemands, ou les noms locaux.
