About this book

Language: French

The compact format of Mammifères d'Afrique makes it ideal for use in the field, while its coverage is the most comprehensive currently possible in this format. Adapted and translated from The Kingdon Field Guide to African Mammals, the greatly condensed text focuses on essential information such as identification and distribution, while the author's superb illustrations have been rearranged into an easy-to-use plate format and placed opposite the text. Complex and more obscure groups like the bats and certain rodent families are summarised by genera. Over 500 maps plot the distribution of all larger species, and for smaller mammals the maps show distribution by genus.

Summary in French:
Une introduction détaillée présente les milieux naturels africains où les animaux peuvent être observés. Couvrant l'ensemble des mammifères terrestres d'Afrique (antilopes, hippopotames, hyènes, rongeurs, zèbres, buffles, éléphants, mangoustes, lions...), traitant notamment certains petits mammifères par genre, cet ouvrage présente chaque espèce à l'aide d'un texte concis et précis, accompagné d'illustrations en couleurs qui permettent de déterminer facilement les animaux dans la nature.
