Chroniques du vivant
Les aventures de la biodiversité
François Letourneux, Nathalie Fontrel

This lovely book brings together 26 short histories, grouped into 3 thematic chapters (the history of life, the history of strategy and the history of mankind), each one illustrated by a precise full-page illustration. Using surprising anecdotes and concrete examples drawn from the most up-to-date scientific research, the book describes in very simple terms the subtlety and the mechanisms of the inter-connections that allow life on Earth – and that are currently threatened. Biodiversity is more than just a collection of animal and plant species; it is an ongoing tale, the story of evolution. Above all, it is the extraordinarily interwoven set of relations between all life forms, and between them and their habitats.

A succession of short and amusing, but rigorously documented stories that all contribute to an over-arching moral. Each chronicle has a precise and informative full-page illustration. The goal of this entertaining book is to alert readers to the issues that threaten biodiversity today.
