Understanding biodiversity: real problems and misconceptions. Natural History Museum of Lille Lille

Alain Pavé offers an innovative critical analysis of biodiversity, rich in concrete examples that are often surprising, from the Quimper snail to the not always white bear.

The author shows that taking into account the real threats hanging over the living requires a much finer understanding of its diversity and of the mechanisms, evolutionary in particular, which govern it and where randomness plays a determining role.
