About this book

Language: French

Illustrated descriptions of nearly 900 beetle species, including clear descriptions of each species, giving its Latin name, its biology, a description including its minimum and maximum size, feeding habits and environment, when it can be found, and a population map.

This volume, which is almost entirely devoted to Adephaga coleoptera, will help entomologists and enthusiasts to recognise coleoptera in their natural surroundings. It includes descriptions of all species belonging to families that are particularly sought after by collectors, such as the Cicindelidae and Carabidae.

Most Adephaga coleoptera, such as carabidae, Dytiscidae and Gyrinidae are predators, and feed on insects and small molluscs. They can be considered beneficial to farming as they eliminate many species that harm crops.
