About this book

Language: German

Authoritative and concise, this beautifully illustrated atlas captures the dazzling diversity of bird life around the world. Its stunning full-colour maps reveal where birds are found and explain the many factors behind their distribution, while numerous photographs and illustrations showcase the most fascinating and colourful aspects of bird behaviour. Conservation concerns are highlighted throughout, underpinned by the very latest data from BirdLife International on the threats birds face worldwide.

Atlas der Vögel reveals how an astonishing variety of behavioural adaptations – from flight and feeding to nest building and song – have enabled birds to exploit virtually every habitat niche available. It also unveils the miracles of bird migration, charting key flyways around the globe and drawing upon the latest satellite-tracking technology to shed new light on this most mysterious phenomenon.

The greatest threat to birds today comes from the human impact on their environment. Such forces as deforestation, wetland drainage, pollution, the introduction of alien species and climate change have placed at least 1200 species in danger of extinction. Atlas der Vögel draws on work by BirdLife International and other organisations to explore this issue, using maps and case studies to illustrate where and why birds are most under threat, and what is being done to protect them.

Summary in German:
Kaum ein Ort auf der Welt, der nicht von Vögeln bewohnt wird! Sie besiedeln Gebirge, Wälder, Ackerland und Städte, sind sogar in Wüsten, auf dem Meer und im ewigen Eis der Polarregionen heimisch.

Welche Länder beherbergen den größten Artenreichtum? Wo leben endemische und bedrohte Arten? Durch welche Anpassungen haben die verschiedenen Vogelarten fast jede ökologische Nische erobert? Welchen Aufschluss über die Zusammensetzung der Kost geben die verschiedenen Schnabelformen? Welche Auswirkungen haben invasive Arten auf die lokalen Vogelpopulationen? Wie beeinflusst der Klimawandel die Lebensräume und als Konsequenz auch die Verbreitung vieler Arten? Wie entwickelt sich der Vogelhandel weltweit?

Auf diese und viele andere Fragen gibt dieses Buch Antworten. Reich illustriert mit über hundert Karten und Grafiken sowie vielen Fotos ist es eine wahre Fundgrube an Informationen zum Thema Vögel weltweit.
