About this book

Language: French

This is the revised 7th edition of Les Rapaces d'Europe, which was overseen by the French ornithologist Michel Cuisin. With an elegant and evocative style, Paul Géroudet treats the natural history of all diurnal and nocturnal raptors in Europe in this book..

After an introduction on predation in general and raptors in particular, he devotes an almost monograph-like entry to each bird, covering names, description, identification, gait, voice, food, ecology, reproduction, migration, distribution, and bibliography. Interspersed are plates with illustrations, offering a relief to the text and contributing to the scientific value of the work.

Summary in French:
La nouvelle édition d'un grand classique de l'édition ornithologique. Ecrit par celui qui a contribué à créer tant de vocations dans l'étude et la protection des oiseaux.

Avec le style élégant et évocateur qu'on lui connaît, Paul Géroudet traite dans cet ouvrage de l'histoire naturelle de tous les rapaces diurnes et nocturnes d'Europe.

Après une introduction sur la prédation en général et sur les rapaces en particulier, il consacre à chaque oiseau un texte proche de la monographie : nom, description, évocation, identification, allures, voix, nourriture, écologie, reproduction, migrations, distribution, bibliographie. Les planches et les dessins, où la précision du détail côtoie le naturel des attitudes, donnent un relief particulier au texte et contribuent à la valeur scientifique de l'ouvrage.

Michel Cuisin, ornithologue reconnu et auteur de très nombreux ouvrages sur la nature en général et sur les oiseaux en particulier, a supervisé et complété cette nouvelle édition.
