About this book

Language: German

This extraordinary photographic book, through the unique pictures of the award-winning photographer Konrad Wothe, shows the animal world in all its colours. Whether birds, insects, amphibians, reptiles or mammals – they all employ colours to impress their peers and to find a partner or to indicate that you'd better not to get too close. Martin Rasper gets to the botton of colour in the animal kingdom and explains, among other things, where the colours come from, how animals perceive colour and how special colour effects come about.

Summary in German:
Dieser außergewöhnliche Bildband zeigt in einzigartigen Bildern des vielfach ausgezeichneten Fotografen Konrad Wothe die Tierwelt in ihrer ganzen Farbenpracht. Ob Vögel, Insekten, Amphibien, Reptilien oder Säugetiere – sie alle setzen Farben ein, um ihre Artgenossen zu beeindrucken und einen Partner zu finden oder um zu signalisieren, dass man ihnen lieber nicht zu nahe kommt. Martin Rasper geht den Farben im Tierreich auf den Grund und erklärt unter anderem, woher die Farben stammen, wie Tiere Farben wahrnehmen und wie spezielle Farbeffekte zustande kommen.
