About this book

Language: Dutch

Basisboek Veldbiologie invites readers to go into nature on investigations themselves. You will learn how to identify wild plants and animals, how a nature reserve works, but also how to easily do fieldwork yourself. In short, it gives you all the basic knowledge to become a good field biologist.

The book contains a properly grounded introduction to what nature is and in which ways you can think about it and treat it. It also gives an overview of abiotic factors, landscapes, soil species, and hydrological cycles.

But the largest part of this book is a field guide to species. Here, you will find the most common species of fungi, mosses, plants, birds, mammals, insects, reptiles, amphibians, and fishes, with particular attention to ecology and taxonomy, but also how you can participate in research and monitoring. The sea, beach, and coastline are treated separately.

Summary in Dutch:
Basisboek Veldbiologie nodigt uit om zelf op onderzoek te gaan in de natuur. Je leert hoe je wilde planten en dieren kunt herkennen, hoe een natuurgebied in elkaar zit, maar ook hoe je zelf eenvoudig veldwerk kunt doen. Kortom: het biedt alle basiskennis bij elkaar die je nodig hebt om een goede veldbioloog te worden.

Het boek bevat een goed gefundeerde inleiding over wat natuur eigenlijk is en op welke manieren je daar over na kan denken en mee om kan gaan. Ook geeft het een overzicht van abiotische factoren, landschappen, grondsoorten en aquatische kringlopen.

Maar de hoofdmoot wordt gevormd door de soorten. In het boek worden de meest algemene paddenstoelen, mossen, planten, vogels, zoogdieren, insecten, reptielen, amfibieën en vissen behandeld met aandacht voor ecologie en taxonomie maar ook voor hoe je mee kunt doen aan onderzoek en monitoring. Zee, strand en kust worden apart behandeld.
