About this book

Language: German

Insects are the largest group of animals in the world. No matter how inhospitable and hostile an environment may be, insects always adapt perfectly. With their diversity and richness of form they are fascinating, surprising and often simply beautiful. Insekten: Entdecken, Beobachten, Schützen reveals their hidden world: mate selection and metamorphosis, hunting and camouflage strategies, and the special features of insects that can only be seen at night and in or on the water.

Summary in German:
Insekten sind die größte Tiergruppe der Welt. Wie unwirtlich und lebensfeindlich die Umwelt auch sein mag – Insekten passen sich perfekt an. In ihrer Vielfalt und ihrem Formenreichtum sind sie faszinierend, überraschend und oft schlicht wunderschön. Dieses Buch zeigt ihre verborgene Welt: Partnerwahl und Metamorphose, Jagd- und Tarnstrategien sowie die Besonderheiten von Insekten, die nur nachts oder über und im Wasser zu sehen sind. Entdecken Sie unsere heimischen Arten im Wald, auf Feldern und Wiesen und auf den Bergen und erfahren Sie, was für den aktiven Schutz der Insekten und ihrer Biotope wichtig ist. Die faszinierende Insektenwelt für Einsteiger!
