About this book

Language: French

This is a French translation of Nick Baker's Bug Book: Discover the World of the Mini-Beast!

We are all fascinated by, and often wary of, the tiny creatures that creep and crawl in our gardens or lurk in the dark corners of our homes, but how much do we really know about insects and their relatives? For instance, could you identify the larvae of a ladybird, which each eat 50 aphids a day? And did you know that some species of snail are hairy?

Nick Baker's Bug Book aims to encourage our understanding of all types of bugs that can be found in our back gardens and beyond – worms, snails, ants, woodlice, centipedes, flies, grasshoppers, beetles, bees, wasps, spiders and butterflies (to name but a few) – by offering practical information and fun activities for the whole family. Learn how to determine the sex of a spider, how to look after ants in a home-made formicarium and even how to rear your own dragonflies!

Packed with details on essential equipment for bug watching and collecting, clear annotated diagrams on bug anatomy and amazing full-colour close-up photographs, as well as astonishing facts on insect behaviour and identification, Nick Baker's Bug Book is essential reading for budding entomologists of all ages.

Summary in French:
Fouiller, récolter, expérimenter : toutes les astuces pratiques pour découvrir au jardin les indices de présence des petites bêtes invertébrés ; des conseils d'observation et de récolte respectueuse ; des expériences amusantes et pédagogiques. Un livre concis, pratique et ludique à consulter en famille, en groupe d’animation, à l’école ou en solitaire.

Saviez-vous que sous un seul de nos pas grouillent plus de 7 millions de bestioles ? Insectes, mille-pattes, araignées, vers, limaces et escargots se faufilent, se tortillent, volent et rampent sur notre planète. Ces bestioles sont si nombreuses et si variées qu’elles sont mal connues de la plupart des hommes. C'est qu'elles inspirent trop souvent répulsion et craintes disproportionnées par rapport à leur taille !

Ce livre souhaite les réhabiliter en aidant à comprendre la place qu’elles occupent dans l’organisation générale de notre environnement. N’oubliez pas que ce sont les petits rouages qui assurent la marche du monde et réfléchissez-y à deux fois avant d’écrabouiller sous votre semelle ce scarabée qui croise votre route !
