About this book

Language: French

A lavishly illustrated book covering the butterflies of the world with informative text written by an expert author who has spent many years watching and studying Lepidoptera around the world. Opening chapters cover the evolution, anatomy, lifecycle, ecology and taxonomy of the world's butterflies. The bulk of Papillons du Monde comprises chapters offering comprehensive coverage of each of the world's butterfly families, from the spectacular swallowtails, apollos, morphos and birdwings through to the cryptic browns, whites, skippers and hairstreaks. The pages are illustrated with hundreds of stunning colour photographs showing more than 350 images taken, mainly by the author, in locations around the world.

Summary in French:
Ce guide est consacré à la présentation exhaustive des 7 familles de papillons, décrivant ainsi les caractéristiques propres à ces familles, sous-familles, tribus et genres. Des spectaculaires voiliers, apollons, morphos et ornithoptères, aux discrets satyres, piérides, hespéries et lycènes... Adrian Hoskins propose un panorama complet et actualisé de l'origine, de l'évolution, de l'anatomie, du cycle de vie, de l'écologie et la taxonomie des papillons. Une partie traite des notions relatives aux origines du comportement migratoire. Cet ouvrage est illustré de 350 photographies de papillons vivants, saisis dans leur habitat naturel dans une quarantaine de pays. Ces photos permettent notamment d'appréhender couleur et forme en tant que moyen de survie.
