About this book

Language: French

This book covers the entire Mediterranean. The author reveals mysteries of a kind rarely described in full and provides scientific information of an unparalleled quality and precision. Very popular with readers since its release, it has already become a reference volume.

Organized in three parts (environment, flora, and fauna), the book begins with the conditions for life and the natural surroundings in its many facets and habitats: coastal areas, arid regions and wetlands, forests, hills, etc.

These descriptions are punctuated by many boxes and photographs. The next two sections describe the most characteristic species of fauna and flora of the south (coastal species included), and are accompanied by 78 plates containing more than 1,000 original colour illustrations.

Summary in French:
Cet ouvrage couvre l'intégralité du pourtour méditerranéen. L'auteur y dévoile les mystères d'une nature rarement décrite dans sa totalité et propose une information scientifique d'une qualité et d'une précision sans égales. Très apprécié de tous les publics depuis sa parution, ce volume fait désormais référence.

Organisé en 3 parties (les milieux, la flore, la faune), l'ouvrage présente d'abord les conditions de vie et le cadre naturel sous ses multiples facettes et habitats : aire littorale, milieux arides et humides, forêts, collines...

Ces descriptions sont ponctuées de nombreux encadrés et photographies. Les deux parties suivantes décrivent, en 78 planches et plus de 1 000 dessins originaux en couleurs, la plupart des espèces caractéristiques de la faune et de la flore méridionales (espèces littorales comprises).
