About this book

Language: French

The order Dermaptera (earwigs) includes a little more than 2000 species. Earwigs are discrete insects, and although known to all, little studied and even more exciting.

This book discusses in great detail our current knowledge of the phylogeny, ecology, behavior, biology etc. of earwigs, and describes, in light of the most recent studies, their behavior, and their very original maternal care to eggs and larvae. It then discusses in detail the twenty species found in France.

The illustration of Gilbert Hodebert (designer at the National Museum of Natural History in Paris), include drawings and watercolours of each species. These are quite remarkable and allow identification of all species. Identification keys accompany a very full text of each taxon.

Summary in French:
L’ordre des Dermaptères (perce-oreilles), comprend un peu plus de 2000 espèces. Les perce-oreilles sont des insectes discrets, et bien que connus de tous, peu étudiés et d’autant plus passionnants.

Cet ouvrage fait le point de manière très approfondie sur nos connaissances actuelles de la phylogénie, de l’écologie, du comportement, de la biologie etc. des perce-oreilles et décrit à la lumière des études les plus récentes leur très original comportement maternel de soins aux œufs et aux larves. Il traite ensuite de manière détaillé de la vingtaine d’espèce de notre faune.

L’illustration de Gilbert HODEBERT (dessinateur au Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle de Paris), comprend des dessins au trait et des aquarelles de chaque espèce. Elle est tout à fait remarquable et permet à elle seule l’identification de toutes les espèces. Des clés d’identification les accompagnent ainsi qu’un texte très complet pour chaque taxon.
