About this book

Language: German

The morphology and mode of life of the Eurasian coot – a very common bird, but very little known in its nature – are presented in this volume according to the state of the latest biological science and illustrated by black-and-white photos. Particular emphasis is placed on the decline of the palaearctic waterfowl world and on the problems of protection and winter reserves.

Summary in German:
Körperbau und Lebensweise des Bleßhuhns – eines zwar weit verbreiteten, aber in seinem Wesen doch recht wenig bekannten Rallenvogels – werden in diesem Bändchen nach dem Stand der neuesten biologischen Wissenschaft dargestellt und durch ein reiches Bildmaterial veranschaulicht. Besonderes Gewicht wird im Zusammenhang mit dem Rückgang der palaearktischen Wasservogelwelt auf die Probleme des Schutzes und der Winterreservationen gelegt.
