About this book

Language: French

This second edition is completey updated compared to the first edition published in 2000.

This new guide to phytophagous beetles of Europe is devoted to the families Buprestidae, Elateridae, Cleridae and Cerambycidae. A host of species are described and illustrated, to help you recognise and identify almost all the Jewel beetle and Longhorn species you might encounter in Europe, ranging from Portugal and Great Britain to Finland and the Balkans. These include species quite recently described.

Phytophagous Beetles of Europe, Volume 1 is packed with new information and discoveries, enriching the entries on the biology in general and the ethology and ecology of each species in particular, allowing for the many additional host-plants found over the past few years.

Distribution maps, drawn up in line with the most recent publications, feature alongside the descriptions. The new classification adopted is from the Catalogue of Palaearctic Coleoptera, by Löbl and Smetana, published from 2003 to 2013, now used by all entomologists. This resolves many of the problems that stem from working with synonymies.

Summary in French:
Ce nouveau guide est totalement remanié par rapport à celui paru chez Nap Éditions il y a 17 ans.

Ce nouveau guide des coléoptères phytophages d'Europe est consacré aux Buprestidae, Elateridae, Cleridae et aux Cerambycidae. De très nombreuses espèces y sont décrites et illustrées, et vous pourrez reconnaître et nommer la quasi totalité des espèces des Buprestes et des Longicornes que vous pourrez rencontrer en Europe, du Portugal et de la Grande Bretagne à la Finlande et aux Balkans, y compris les espèces récemment décrites.

Une foule de découvertes et d’informations nouvelles complètent les notices sur la biologie en général et, en particulier, sur l'éthologie et l'écologie de chaque espèce, de nombreuses plantes-hôtes ayant été découvertes ces dernières années.

Les cartes qui les accompagnent, établies d'après les publications les plus récentes, précisent leur répartition. La nouvelle classification est celle du Catalogue of Palaearctic Coleoptera, de Löbl et Smetana, publié de 2003 à 2013, que tous les entomologistes utilisent maintenant et qui met fin à de nombreux problèmes, dus aux synonymies.
