Do Birds Have Flair?

Do Birds Have Flair?

160 Keys to Understanding Birds


L. Chazel, M. Chazel

Edition 2013

This book traces the history of birds right back to their reptilian origins. It underlines their homogeneity - flight, beak, skeleton and feathers are a bird's reference points - without losing sight of their diversity. Morphological and biological diversity (reproduction especially), but also adaptative. How do they withstand the cold and the predators, how do flightless birds run, how do you fly when you are a vulture? This book explores the intimacy of birds whose habits awaken the curiosity - the Grey Cuckoo, certain species of pigeon or the Hamerkop. It also discusses the relationship between humans and birds.

Sustainable cities that are great places to live


L. Estival, M. Musy, P. Picq

And yet from Zurich to Tokyo, via Nantes or Lyon, researchers, businesses and ordinary citizens are working together to invent metropolises of the future that will be great places to live... With the help of around a dozen experts, this book – which takes neither a rashly ecological nor a blindly technical standpoint – explores current changes by pointing out advances as well as limitations.
