Fauna de France Identification Volumes

Postby SteveMcBill on Fri Dec 12, 2008 8:46 am

Dear All,

Over the last 25 years or so many of the naturalists in the County, particularly entomologists, have purchased specific copies of volumes from the Fauna de France series as in many instances they were the only published material available for certain groups of insects and beyond.

They were never cheap books being well illustrated, and the text being in French did put some off but many entomologists are used to having to work around French, German, Danish, Italian and even Russian texts to obtain the information and identification abilities that they need.

I have just found that the Fauna de France series has a website and that many of the earlier volumes are NOW available as a FREE PDF file download. These range from Tardigrades (Water Bears) to Orthoptera (Grasshoppers and Crickets), from Dermaptera (Earwings) to Birds, from Sea Urchins to various families of Coleoptera (Beetles). I have not been through them all and consequently cannot vouch for their completeness but I did wonder if you might be interested and if they might be useful to some.

To see and download the volumes check over at:

Here is hoping they prove useful, at least to some.
