About this book

Language: French

They fly without being heard, and see with their ears, capture their prey in flight and, more than any other animal, bats give wings to our imagination. This field guide provides an update on the latest knowledge in the field of chiropterology. Well documented, it accurately describes their biology and ecology; their distribution, distinctive features, measurements, confusion species, echolocation calls, habitat, roosting sites, behavior and reproduction, hunting mode and diet, use of space, threats and protection measures. To clarify their identification, families, genera and species are clearly presented in tables, and shown in detailed comparative pictures. The guide covers 79 bat species from Europe, Eastern Europe, North Africa, and mainland Turkey. A new determination key based on their fur allows for unambiguous identification.

Summary in French:
Elles volent sans être entendues, voient avec les oreilles, capturent leur proie en vol et, plus que tout autre animal, les chauves-souris donnent des ailes à notre imagination. Ce guide de terrain fait le point sur les dernières connaissances en chiroptérologie. Très documenté, il décrit avec précision leur biologie et leur écologie : répartition, caractères distinctifs, mensurations, espèces similaires, cris d'écholocalisation, habitat, gîtes, comportement et reproduction, mode de chasse et régime alimentaire, utilisation de l'espace, menaces et mesures de protection. Pour clarifier leur identification, les familles, genres et espèces sont présentés clairement sous forme de tableaux, par des photos comparatives de détails. 79 espèces de chauves-souris (Europe, Europe de l'Est, Afrique du Nord, Turquie principalement). Une nouvelle clé de détermination par les poils, pour une identification sans équivoque.
