About this book

Language: German

In addition to the lemurs of Madagascar, the book deals with the African and Asian Strepsirrhini (wet nose primates). The Tarsier or tarsiers are among the oldest primate ever. They are among the Haplorrhini (dry nose primates) and have a separate chapter of this book. Unfortunately, most species are threatened or endangered, because of the vast destruction of habitats for the benefit of human activities.

Summary in German:
Neben den Lemuren Madagaskars behandelt das Buch die afrikanischen und asiatischen Strepsirrhini (Feuchtnasenprimaten). Die Tarsier oder Koboldmakis gehören zu den ältesten Primaten überhaupt. Sie gehören zu den Haplorrhini (Trockennasenprimaten) und beschließen in einem eigenem Kapitel dieses Buch. Bedauerlicherweise sind die meisten Arten gefährdet oder stark bedroht. Und das wegen der ungeheuerlichen Vernichtung der Lebensräume zu Gunsten menschlicher Aktivitäten.
