About this book

Language: French

This fauna includes identification keys, descriptions, color plates, line drawings, geographical distribution maps and a list of flowers for all species of bees or Apoidea now known from Madagascar and the neighboring islands in the Indian Ocean. A total of 244 species are listed. 62 species are new. The following 3 subgenera of Ceratinini are new: Malgatina Terzo & Pauly, Copoceratina Terzo & Pauly, and Hirashima Terzo & Pauly.

Examination of the distribution of endemic species highlights the importance of conserving natural formations (eastern rainforests and dry forests of the west, and non-anthropized maquis of the south) for the protection of biodiversity in terms of Apoidea. Unlike temperate regions, anthropogenic environments of Madagascar, particularly grassland, are extremely poor in species of Apoidea.

Summary in French:
Cette faune présente des clés d'identification, des descriptions, des planches en couleur, des dessins au trait, des cartes de répartition géographique et la liste des fleurs butinées pour toutes les espèces d'abeilles ou Apoidea actuellement connus de Madagascar et des îles voisines de l'Océan Indien. Au total, 244 espèces sont répertoriées. 62 espèces sont nouvelles. Les 3 sous-genres de Ceratinini suivants sont nouveaux: Malgatina Terzo & Pauly, Copoceratina Terzo & Pauly, Hirashima Terzo & Pauly.

L'examen de la distribution des espèces endémiques met en évidence l'importance de la conservation des formations naturelles (forêts humides orientales et forêts sèches de l'ouest, maquis non anthropisé du sud) pour la protection de la biodiversité en matière d'Apoidea. Contrairement aux régions tempérées, les milieux anthropiques de Madagascar, en particulier les savanes herbeuses, sont extrêmement pauvres en espèces d'Apoidea.
