A la d couverte des oiseaux
D'où vient le Bécasseau sanderling ? Comment différencier une Buse variable d'un Milan noir ? Ces guides de nouvelle génération, publiés en partenariat avec le Muséum, ouvrent les portes de la nature à ceux qui veulent mieux la connaître. Les ouvrages s'articulent en deux parties. La première partie donne tous les conseils sur comment observer les oiseaux et les bases sur ce qu'est un oiseau. La seconde partie est consacrée à l'identification proprement dite. Les 120 espèces les plus courantes sont présentées sous forme de fiches d'une page. En annexe, un carnet pratique donne les coordonnées d'associations, de musées, de sites web scientifiques grand public ainsi qu'une bibliographie.

The salmagundi of prose poems, prose-poetic musings, criticism, and reflections that is "Divagations" has long been considered a treasure trove by students of aesthetics and modern poetry. This was the only book of prose that Mallarme published in his lifetime and, in a new translation by Johnson, it is now available for the first time in English just as he arranged it, in all of its languor and musicality.
Empire Of The Ants
Ants came to this planet long before man. Since then they have developed one of the most intricate civilizations imaginable – a civilization of great richness and technological brilliance. During the few seconds it takes you to read this sentence, some 700 milli0on ants will be born on earth... Edmond Wells had studied ants for years: he knew of the power which existed in their hidden world. On his death, he leaves his apartment to his nephew Jonathan with one proviso: that he must not descend beyond the cellar door. But when the family’s dog escapes down the cellar steps, Jonathan has little alternative but to follow. Innocently he enters the world of the ant, whose struggle for existence forces him to reassess man’s place in the cycle of nature. It is an experience that will alter his life for ever... Empire of the Ants is an extraordinary achievement. It takes you inside the ants’ universe and reveals it to be a highly organised world, as complex and relentless as human society and even more brutal.

The Ecology of Invasions by Animals and Plants
n this book I have tried to bring together ideas from three different Istreams of thought with which I have been closely concerned during the last thirty years or so. The first is faunal history, usually regarded as a purely academic subject, but to some of whose events can be traced a number of the serious dislocations taking place in the world today. The second is ecology, particularly the structure and dynamics of populations. The third is conservation. I first published a few ideas about the signifi cance of invasions in 1943, in a war-time review called Polish Science and Learning, under the title of 'The changing realms of animal life'. Since then I have had the opportunity to think pretty hard about conservation, while taking part in the planning and development of the Nature Con servancy. In March 1957 I gave three broadcasts in the B. B. C. 's Third Programme, under the title of 'Balance and Barrier'. These were sub sequently printed in The Listener (1957, Vol. 57, pp. 514-15,556-7,596-7, and 600). The present book is essentially an expansion of these. I am extremely grateful to Mr James C. Thornton and Dr John Simons for in planning and giving these talks. advice and help In preparing this book I have had invaluable assistance from the staff of the Bureau of Animal Population. Miss C. M. Gibbs typed the fair copy. Miss M.
The Vampire Countess
In vita mors, in morte vita! In life, death; in death, life! The particular gift of Countess Addhema was to be reborn beautiful and young every time she could apply to the hideous bareness of her skull a living head of hair, a scalp, torn from the head of a living victim. This was why her tomb was full of the skulls of young women... Ren? recoiled in horror at the sight of his mistress restored to her real condition: the cadaver of an old woman, fleshless, cold, totally bald and already turning to dust... "After 1856, it would be a long time before any other writer contrived a vampire as perversely charismatic as Addhema; she is really three vampires in one. She is, first and foremost, the vampire-as-libido-run-wild, but she is certainly the vampire-as-gold-digger too, and she may well have something of the vampire-as-muse to complete her mystique."-Brian Stableford. Paul F?val (1816-1887) was the author of numerous popular swashbuckling novels and one of the fathers of the modern crime thriller. Brian Stableford has published more than fifty novels and two hundred short stories. The Vampire Countess was written in 1855-forty years before Bram Stoker's Dracula-and is one of three classic vampire stories also available from Black Coat Press.
