About this book

Language: French

Not all sharks are the killers they are believed to be, nor are they the "dinosaurs" of the seas that have stopped evolving. Instead, they have developed a wealth of adaptations and fossil forms are very different from their current cousins. From their current life to their origins, a period 450 million years has passed.

Gilles Cuny invites the reader to a long dive in the sea, but also in the depths of geological time, to follow the 450 million years of evolution of a remarkable group.

Summary in French:
Tous les requins ne sont pas les tueurs que l'on croit, ni des « dinosaures » des mers qui n'auraient pas évolué. Au contraire, ils ont développé des trésors d'adaptation et les formes fossiles sont bien différentes de leurs cousins actuels. La vie quotidienne des requins depuis leur origine, il y a 450 millions d'années.

Gilles Cuny invite le lecteur à une longue plongée en mer, mais aussi dans les profondeurs des temps géologiques, pour suivre les 450 millions d'années d'évolution d'un groupe remarquable.
