About this book

Language: French

- Who is the ecological animal that turns toxic waste into high-value luxury goods?
- Why are honeybees outstanding dancers?
- Who is the ideal passenger for interplanetary travel?
- What is the insect that invented the jet engine?

Entomologist Vincent Albouy is, among others, President of the Office for insects and their environment (Office pour les insectes et leur environnement – OPIE) and was the founder and host of PONEMA, the French association for the development of wild or natural gardens. This book about insects has a scholarly character to it, but is also full of curiosity and poetry, which makes these animals fascinating for even the least naturalist-inclined amongst us. Its exciting texts are enhanced by the beauty of the drawings of François Desbordes, one of the greatest contemporary naturalist illustrators.

Summary in French:
- Quel est l’animal écolo qui transforme les déchets toxiques en produits de luxe à haute valeur ajoutée ?
- Pourquoi les abeilles sont-elles des danseuses hors pair ?
- Qui est le passager idéal pour les voyages interplanétaires ?
- Quel est l’insecte qui a inventé le moteur à réaction ?

Entomologiste, Vincent Albouy est, entre autres, président de l’Office pour les insectes et leur environnement (OPIE) et fut le fondateur et l’animateur de PONEMA, association pour le développement des jardins sauvages ou naturels. Il porte sur les insectes un regard certes savant, mais aussi plein de curiosité et de poésie, qui rend ces animaux fascinants même pour les moins naturalistes d’entre nous. Ses textes passionnants sont mis en valeur par la beauté des dessins de François Desbordes, l’un des plus grands illustrateurs naturalistes contemporains.
