About this book

Language: French

This is a French translation of Wildfowl: An Identification Guide to the Ducks, Geese and Swans of the World.

Guide des Canards, des Oies et des Cygnes brings together, for the first time in one volume, a concise review of all the wildfowl species of the world, illustrating all major plumages and subspecies in colour. The 47 superb colour plates by Hilary Burn form the backbone of the book, each page summarising the criteria required to identify, and in many cases, to age and sex each species along with colour world distribution maps and an easy-to-use cross-reference system to the main body of text. The authoritative text by Steve Madge treats each species in depth, giving identification, ageing and sexing features, as well as aspects of behaviour, migration, distribution, population and conservation.

Summary in French:
155 espèces, leurs descriptions, leurs répartitions.

Ce guide permet d’identifier 155 espèces. Les caractères distinctifs (morphologie, mensurations, plumage, bec, voix…) de chacune d’entre elles sont décrits en détail. Les planches couleurs illustrent toutes les espèces, en présentant lorsqu’il y a lieu les différences entre les adultes et les juvéniles, les femelles et les mâles, et entre les sous-espèces. Là où cela est nécessaire, les espèces sont aussi illustrées en vol. On visualisera les répartitions d’un simple coup d’œil grâce aux cartes en couleurs.
