About this book

Language: German

This monograph is an extensive compilation on the topic of goats, takins and musk oxen. In addition to contributions to the developmental history and systematics, all species and subspecies are described in detail with regards to their distribution, natural population levels, morphology and anatomy, ethology, and reproductive biology. In addition, all forms are made comparable to each other for the first time by illustrations. In addition to the individual monograph, the author provides an overview of the keeping in zoos, and of natural and artificial breeding in captivity, presents selected diseases, and deals with the history of domestication of wild goats and sheep.

Summary in German:
Die vorliegende Monographie stellt eine umfangreiche Zusammenstellung zum Thema der Böcke, Takine und Moschusochsen dar. Neben Beiträgen zur Entwicklungsgeschichte und Systematik sind alle Arten und Unterarten in ihrer Verbreitung, ihren Naturbeständen, ihrer Morphologie und Anatomie, ihrer Ethologie und auch der Reproduktionsbiologie umfassend beschrieben. Zudem sind sämtliche Formen erstmals durch Abbildungen miteinander vergleichbar. Neben den einzelnen Monographien gibt der Autor einen Überblick zur Haltung in Tiergärten, der natürlichen und künstlichen Aufzucht in Menschenobhut, stellt ausgewählte Erkrankungen vor und befasst sich mit der Domestikationsgeschichte der Wildziegen und Wildschafe.
