The ibex is a talisman in the Alps. In 1960 they were reintroduced in the Großglockner area of Austria – the beginning of a remarkable success story. Today, if you take your time, attentive observers are very likely to see these animals. This book describes the biology and habitat of the ibex as well as the development of the population. It explores relevant knowledge and reports on scientific research. Large parts of the distribution area of the ibex lie in areas of nature conservation in the Hohe Tauern National Park.
