About this book

Language: French

Of the 20,000 beetle species known in Europe, this guide lists the most common or most conspicuous ones, recognizable without needing a hand lens, covering nearly 800 species. Each species is accompanied by a high-resolution close-up photograph allowing its identification, and a descriptive record indicating its distribution, biology, ecology and elements of ethology.

A broad introduction presents these insects: their anatomy, development, and lifestyles. This is supplemented by a brief history of their scientific discovery, as well as a reminder of the interactions between beetles and humans, which can be beneficial or problematic depending on the species. It emphasizes their essential role in ecosystems and the importance of ensuring their preservation.

Summary in French:
Parmi les 20 000 espèces connues en Europe, ce guide recense les coléoptères les plus communs ou les plus remarquables, reconnaissables à vue pour la plupart. Chaque espèce est accompagnée d’une photographie en gros plan permettant son identification, et d’une notice descriptive indiquant sa répartition, sa biologie, son écologie ainsi que des éléments d’éthologie.

Une large introduction présente ces insectes : anatomie, développement, modes de vie. Elle est complétée par une petite histoire de leur découverte scientifique, ainsi qu’un rappel des interactions entre les coléoptères et l’homme, qui peuvent être bénéfiques ou problématiques selon les espèces. Elle souligne leur rôle essentiel dans les écosystèmes et l’importance de veiller à leur préservation.

- Près de 800 espèces, toutes photographiées en très haute résolution à fort grossissement.
- Un ouvrage sans équivalent dans l’édition naturaliste
- Un guide destiné à un large public, où l’amateur curieux comme l’expert en entomologie puiseront de nombreuses informations, chacune à leur niveau.
