The males have large 'antlers' and this gives them their common name. The smaller female does not possess large antlers. Introduction The Order Coleoptera or beetles forms the largest group of insects worldwide with about 370,000 described species. However, the situation in the British Isles is slightly different and beetle diversity comes third with about 4,100 species, being surpassed by both Diptera (flies) and Hymenoptera (bees, wasps, ants, etc.).

En trente ans, 420 millions d'oiseaux ont disparu en Europe Une étude publiée ce lundi 3 novembre dans le journal scientifique Ecology Letters vient de révéler de nouveaux chiffres inquiétants concernant le déclin de la population des oiseaux. L'étude révèle que 420 millions d'oiseaux ont disparu en trente ans en Europe. Près de 90% de cette disparition a été enregistrée chez 36 espèces d'oiseaux communs telles que le moineau, l'étourneau, la perdrix grise et l'alouette. Richard Inger, chercheur à l'institut pour l'environnement et le développement durable à l'université d'Exeter et qui a participé à l'étude, s'alarme : "Il est très préoccupant que les espèces les plus communes disparaissent rapidement puisque ce sont précisément ces oiseaux qui sont utiles aux hommes." Un déclin néfaste Ces oiseaux permettent de lutter contre les parasites agricoles, de disséminer les graines et d'éliminer les carcasses d'animaux. Protéger les espèces et leur habitat Par ailleurs, l'étude montre que la population de certaines espèces d'oiseaux est en augmentation.

In the late 1400s, Europeans arrived in India and began setting up trading companies.

Welcome to Viet Nam Creatures Website Faune et flore du Vietnam (Vietnam, mon pays natal. Terre des dragons et des légendes) La forêt vietnamienne couvre encore les 2/5 è du pays. Malgré une déforestation accentuée durant les dernières années, dûe en grande partie à l'accroissement de la population et surtout àaux défoliants déversés durant la guerre du Viêt-Nam, la forêt vietnamienne continue à abriter tant de richesses florales et animales. Quelques découvertes récentes Il s’agit des doucs à pattes grises (Pygathrix cinerea), du lapin tigré (Nesolagus temminsi.)( loài thỏ vằn ) de Trường Sơn, du galliforme (bambusicola fytchii), du boeuf gris (Bos sauveli) et de garrulaxe à long bec (jabouilleia danjoui)( loài khướu). La découverte de la grue antigone orientale en 1986 dans le delta du Mékong et celle du saola en 1994 montrent quel point les scientifiques ont commencé à porter une attention particulière sur la faune vietnamienne. Un programme dynamique de reboisement prévoyant la plantation de 500 millions d'arbres a été lancé il y a quelques années par le gouvernement vietnamien.
