About this book

Language: French

Rodents are currently one of the most diverse orders of mammals. Spread through all continents, they have extremely varied ecological niches. They form a world that includes "friendly" species like squirrels and marmots, "scary" like rats or quite simply totally unknown like a number of voles. They can cause major damage or be vectors of disease.

In France, they are broken down into six families (21 genera and 31 species). Following a description of their relationship with the environment and then with Man, they are presented in an illustrated monograph. In addition to dichotomous keys used to determine them, an illustrated monograph lists the main known data for everyone of the 31 species. This new edition is a unique and one of the most recent summaries of the topic. It clarifies notions put forward in some chapters of the previous edition - public health and population regulation. It updates the regulations (control and protection). It takes account of new knowledge acquired on several species (recent introductions, new species, etc.).
