About this book

Language: French

This is the first guide devoted to exotic marine plants and animals. Sargasso, slipper limpet, Caulerpa ... many animal and plant species from elsewhere colonize our coasts and estuaries, some of which become invasive. For aach species a precise description is given. Also described are vectors of introduction (shipping, aquaculture, etc.), the effects on the environment and the positive or negative economic effects – following the example of the now exploited Pacific oyster.

Summary in French:
Le premier guide consacré aux plantes et animaux marins exotiques. Sargasse, crépidule, caulerpe… autant d’espèces animales ou végétales venues d’ailleurs, qui colonisent nos côtes et estuaires et dont certaines deviennent invasives. Chaque espèce fait l’objet d’une description précise. Sont également décrits les vecteurs d’introduction (transport maritime, aquaculture, etc.), les effets sur l’environnement et les retombées économiques positives ou négatives – à l’exemple de l’Huître japonaise désormais exploitée.
