About this book

Language: French

Ranging from the largest terrestrial carnivore, the polar bear, and hyper-predatory wild cats, to the tiny least weasel that can squeeze through a wedding ring, the true carnivores – order Carnivora – include some of the world's most charismatic, admired, feared and spectacular creatures. The first comprehensive guide to every terrestrial species, A Field Guide to the Carnivores of the World profiles all 250 of the world's carnivores.

A detailed account for each species describes key identification characteristics, distribution and habitat, behaviour, feeding ecology, social patterns, life-history statistics, conservation and the latest on classification, including some unexpected discoveries. Eighty-six magnificent specially commissioned colour plates by top wildlife artist Priscilla Barrett depict each species, with subspecies and colour variations shown for many. There are line drawings of skulls (230) and footprints (110), as well as black-and-white sketches depicting the behaviour of specific species (45). This is an essential reading for anyone interested in wildlife – appeals to travellers, wildlife enthusiasts, mammal students, conservation planners and specialists.

Summary in French:
Du plus gros des carnivores terrestres, l’ours blanc, au plus petit, la belette commune, les vrais carnivores comptent dans leurs rangs certains des animaux les plus charismatiques au monde, des plus admirés et craints, et des plus spectaculaires.

Premier guide complet des Carnivora, le Guide des carnivores du monde décrit 245 espèces. Pour chacune d’entre-elles, une fiche détaillée fournit les principales caractéristiques permettant la détermination, indique la distribution et l’habitat, le comportement, l’écologie alimentaire, les mœurs sociales, le cycle de vie, la conservation et les résultats des dernières recherches sur la classification, notamment certaines découvertes inattendues.

Quatre-vingt-six magnifiques planches en couleur inédites, dessinées par la grande spécialiste de la faune sauvage, Priscilla Bartlett, décrivent chacune des espèces, et des vignettes illustrent quelques sous espèces, variations de coloration, ou comportements. Des dessins au trait représentent également plus de 230 crânes et 110 empreintes.
