About this book

Language: French

First part:
As part of a general revision of the feather mites of African birds, the author presents a study of the mite superfamily Analgoidea harvested from the Ralliformes. The plumage fauna of these birds is rich but its variety consists of the diversification of a very small number of initial forms. Four genera, two belonging to the Analgidae family, two to the Pterolichidae family, contain 31 of the 38 parasitic species encountered and 95% of the total harvested. Seen through the mites living in their plumage, the order of the Ralliformes is very homogeneous. Its various genera and families harbor parasitic forms very close to one another. The description of 15 new species is given in the present work, which ends with identification keys.

Second part:
Following his previous studies on the feather mites of the Galliformes, Cuculiformes and Ralliformes of Africa, the author presents a review of the mite superfamily Analgoidea encountered on the Gruiformes, including in this order four families: Gruidae, Otitidae, Burhinidae and Jacanidae. Sixteen parasitic species have been identified on these birds. Ten of these species are new and are described in this work. Seen through these parasites, the order of the Gruiformes appears heterogeneous. The acarofauna of the Jacanidae is similar to that of the Ralliformes; that of the Burhinidae to that of the Charadriiformes (Glareolidae); that of the Otitidae to that of the Falconiformes. The acarofauna of Gruidae is the most original. It has elements reminiscent of that of the Ardeiformes and others, recalling that of the Charadriiformes. It also includes a genus that appears only on the family of the Gruidae. This genus is defined in the present study.

Summary in French:
Premiere partie:
Dans le cadre d'une révision générale des Sarcoptiformes plumicoles des oiseaux d'Afrique, l'auteur présente une étude des Analgoïdea récoltés sur les Ralliformes. La faune plumicole de ces oiseaux est riche mais sa variété est faite de la diversification d'un très petit nombre de formes initiales. Quatre genres, appartenant deux à la famille des Analgidae, deux à la famille des Pterolichidae, groupent 31 des 38 espèces parasitaires rencontrées et 95% du total des individus récoltés. Vu à travers les Acariens vivant dans leur plumage, l'ordre des Ralliformes est tres homogène. Ses divers genres et families hébergent des formes parasitaires très voisines les unes des autres. La description de 15 espèces nouvelles est donnée dans le présent travail, que terminent des clefs d'identification.

Deuxieme partie:
Donnant suite à ses précédentes études sur les Sarcoptiformes plumicoles des Galliformes, des Cuculiformes et des Ralliformes d'Afrique, l'auteur présente une revue des Analgoïdea rencontrés sur les Gruiformes, incluant dans cet ordre quatre familles: Gruidae, Otitidae, Burhinidae et Jacanidae. 16 espèces parasitaires ont été identifiées chez ces oiseaux. 10 de ces espèces sont nouvelles et sont décrites dans le present travail. Vu à travers ces parasites, l'ordre des Gruiformes apparait hétérogène. L'acarofaune des Jacanidae s'apparente à celle des Ralliformes; celle des Burhinidae à celle des Charadriiformes (Glareolidae); celle des Otitidae à celle des Falconiformes. L'acarofaune des Gruidae est la plus originale. Elle présente des éléments rappelant celle des Ardeiformes et d'autres rappelant celle des Charadriiformes. Elle comporte aussi un genre qui paraît inféodé à la seule famille des Gruidae, genre nouveau défini dans la préesente étude.
