Description:

Text French. Two volumes set in slip-case. The first volume provides an overview of the provinceís geographic and historical context before exploring customs and beliefs regarding fauna. The author then discusses the animal-related activities that are hunting and fishing, before ending with the more contemporary concern of nature conservation. The second volume is a guide of vertebrates in Katanga. For each featured species, the description of biological characteristics is accompanied by details on folklore, beliefs, or hunting practices. Invertebrates are also examined in the context of their interactions with humans, and discussed in areas as varied as medicine, agriculture, and folklore. At the end of the volume, the reader will find fauna lists drawn up by specialists from the Royal Museum for Central Africa. All known vertebrates in Katanga are included. This constitutes the first complete guide to vertebrates in Katanga.
