About this book

Language: German

Over the course of 30 years Ludwig Trutnau has regularly visited and done herpetological fieldwork in Chaco, a historical department in Paraguay. With his typical meticulousness he has kept a field diary, where he has accurately recorded his finds,  their locations and other observations. Based on these records Ludwig Trutnau then wrote this book. Two South American specialists, Ms. Albia Consul and Dr. Markus Monzel took over the updating of the scientific names and the fine-tuning of the manuscript in detail, while Dr. Markus Schwederski has meticulously matched manuscript and field diary in case of doubt about biological matters.

Summary in German:
Ludwig Trutnau hat den paraguayanische Chaco im Laufe von 30 Jahren regelmäßig besucht und dort feldherpetologisch gearbeitet. Mit der ihm eigenen Akkuratesse hat er ein Feldtagebuch geführt, in dem die Funde nebst Fundort und weiteren Beobachtungen exakt notiert sind. Auf der Basis dieser Aufzeichnungen hat Ludwig Trutnau dann dieses Buch geschrieben. Die beiden Südamerika-Spezialisten Frau Albia Konsul und Dr. Markus Monzel haben in detaillierter Kleinarbeit die Aktualisierung der wissenschaftlichen Namen und den Feinschliff des Manuskripts übernommen, der Biologie Dr. Markus Schwederski hat in Zweifelsfragen akribisch Manuskript und Feldtagebuch abgeglichen.
