About this book

Language: French

As part of a general revision of the feather mites of African birds, the author presents a range of species encountered on Galliformes; of 50 species, 24 are new. Description of the latter is given in the present work, that ends with identification keys. The fauna of Sarcoptiformes parasitising the plumage of Galliformes is rich and varied, but seems to derive from a small number of initial forms. Its specificity is narrow. The influence of climate on this fauna is probable, but not demonstrated.

Summary in French:
Dans le cadre d'une révision générale des Sarcoptiformes plumicoles des oiseaux d'Afrique, l'auteur présente un répertoire des espèces rencontrées sur Galliformes, soit 50 espèces dont 24 nouvelles. Description de ces dernières est donnée dans le présent travail, que terminent des clefs d'identification. La faune de Sarcoptiformes parasitant les plumages de Galliformes est riche et variée, mais semble dériver d'un petit nombre de formes initiales. Sa spécificité est étroite. L'influence du climat sur cette faune est probable, mais non démontrée.
