About this book

Language: French

Le Delta de l'Ogooué is an attractive and informative book of 324 pages divided into 12 chapters, summarising all available data on the Ramsar site of Bas-Ogooué in Gabon. In addition to the general data on the site, the book provides a recent review of biodiversity knowledge of the Bas-Ogooué Ramsar site, in particular on the following groups: fish, birds, large fauna, amphibians and reptiles, flora and vegetation. A new mapping of the vegetation has been established with the collaboration of the French Institute for Research for Development (IRD).

Le Delta de l'Ogooué addresses the structure and history beyond the Ogooué in chapter 2. Chapters 3 to 5 are devoted to the flora, the vegetation of Bas Ogooué and vegetation mapping. Chapters 7-11 cover fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. Chapter 12, finally, presents all the effective conservation methods used to protect this immense and rich biodiversity.

For Tariq Stévart, Le Delta de l'Ogooué is the first book to provide detailed documentation on the rich human history and biodiversity of the Bas-Ogooué complex. Its wetlands form the third largest delta system in Africa. A real treasure of biodiversity, it is the most intact after the Niger Delta and the Nile.

Summary in French:
Le Delta de l’Ogooué est un livre attractif et informatif de 324 pages reparties en 12 chapitres, capitalisant l’ensemble des données disponibles, sur le site Ramsar du Bas-Ogooué, tel que délimité actuellement. En plus des données générales sur le site, l’ouvrage fournit une revue récente des connaissances sur la biodiversité du site Ramsar du Bas-Ogooué, en particulier sur les groupes suivants : ichtyologie, ornithologie, grande faune, amphibiens et reptiles, flore et végétation. Une nouvelle cartographie de la végétation a été établie avec la collaboration de l’Institut français de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD).

Le Delta de l’Ogooué aborde dans chapitre 2, la structure et l’histoire du delà de l’Ogooué. Les chapitres 3, 4 et 5 sont consacrés quant à eux, à la flore, la végétation du Bas Ogooué et la cartographie de la végétation. Les chapitres 7, 8, 9, 10 et 11, pour leur part, portent sur les poissons, les amphibiens, les reptiles, les oiseaux et les mammifères. Le chapitre 12, enfin, présente toutes les méthodes de conservation efficaces de toute cette immense et riche biodiversité.

Pour Tariq Stévart,  Le Delta de l’Ogooué est le premier à fournir une documentation détaillée sur la riche histoire humaine et la biodiversité du complexe du Bas-Ogooué. Ses milieux humides forment le troisième plus grand système deltaïque d’Afrique. Un véritable un trésor de biodiversité, le plus intact devant le Delta du Niger et celui du Nil.
