Des insectes en ville

Insects in town


V. Albouy

Edition 2017

This work sends you on a very lively exploration of a broad variety of insects and other small creatures like spiders and centipedes living at your side in towns. A combination of science and naturalist or historical anecdotes, it takes you deep into this small world, from gardens and wastelands to our living quarters. As both a common natural heritage to be saved and a nuisance they can sometimes be unbearable, you will never be indifferent to urban insects again!
