About this book

Language: French

This pocket guide is an ideal complement to any visit to the Pyrenees and will help you identify much of the flora and fauna that you will come across. It describes not only the commonest and most observable species but also some of the most singular and remarkable ones that these mountains are home to.

In all, 910 species are illustrated, from mosses to trees, from invertebrates to large mammals. There is also a small selection devoted to some of the domestic breeds of cattle you might come across. The illustrations are accompanied by brief texts that describe certain remarkable characteristics of the depicted species and provide details regarding their habitats and when and where they are easiest to see.

This guide aims to be a useful practical tool that will help you get the best out of the time you spend in the Pyrenees.

Summary in French:
Transformez une simple excursion dans les Pyrénées en véritable expérience naturaliste ! Quel que soit votre niveau de connaissances, ce guide pratique vous permettra d’identifier facilement les plantes et les animaux que vous croiserez sur votre chemin.

Au total, 910 espèces sont illustrées, des champignons aux grands mammifères, en passant par les plantes, de nombreux invertébrés, les poissons, les amphibiens, les reptiles, les oiseaux, etc. Chaque dessin, d’une très grande qualité, est accompagné d’une description de l’espèce, de son nom commun, de son nom scientifique et de pictogrammes résumant clairement les données principales (habitat, fréquence, phénologie, etc.).

La chaîne des Pyrénées y est également présentée en détail : histoire géologique et biogéographique, sites remarquables, principaux habitats. Une carte figure les zones protégées (parcs nationaux et régionaux, réserves, etc.) et les sites à ne pas manquer.
