About this book

The Provence is the richest wildlife region of France. Whether you consider the flora and fauna in detail or simply take a broad view of the landscape, every corner of this region is different.

There are the spectacular, bird-filled wetlands of the Camargue, but right next to them lies the arid, almost desert-like plateau of La Crau. Then there are the sizzling hot Mediterranean hillsides and the inviting clear seas of the Cote d'Azur. Just a little inland you can marvel at the fairylike, gnarled beech forests on the north slopes and the flower and butterfly rich subalpine plateaus in the mountains. All of this variety is present within the small region of Provence.

The Crossbill Guide to Provence and Camargue, France describes 25 routes and 20 sites found within the region. The book is complemented with extensive chapters on landscape, geology, history, descriptions of the flora and fauna and tips to observe wildlife.

Biography

Dirk Hilbers (born The Netherlands, 1976), set up the Crossbill Guides Foundation and travels Europe to research the guidebooks. This is the 26th guide he has worked on. When not in the field, Dirk Hilbers is a lecturer of environmental ethics at the University of Amsterdam.

Constant Swinkels (born The Netherlands, 1995), now finalizing his master degree in ecology, has been a naturalist from the moment he was able to hold a pair of binoculars. His interests are broad – from birds to wildflowers and butterflies to reptiles. Constant specialises in vegetation ecology and co-authored the routes, the bird section and the ecological chapters of this book.

Albert Vliegenthart (born The Netherlands, 1975) works at `De Vlinderstichting' – the Dutch butterfly conservancy and is a butterfly and dragonfly specialist, as well as being a keen birdwatcher. Albert has co-authored the routes and contributed to the insect and bird sections of this book.
