About this book

Language: German

The author has been collecting data on the Tasmanian wolf for 30 years. He photographed and measured specimens, skulls and skeletons in around 30 museums in Europe, Australia and the USA and contributed to knowledge about the species in several publications. In the archives of Launceston and Hobart/Tasmania, he examined the partly unpublished image and text material and interviewed the last eyewitnesses; he owes some valuable information to scientists and amateur zoologists. A film document from Hobart was made into an educational film in collaboration with the Göttinger Institut für den Wissenschaftlichen Film (IWF, the Göttingen Institute for Scientific Film).

A significant amount of space is devoted to the Tasmanian wolf as a zoo animal and to the questions of the extent to which it can be considered a "typical runner" and the extent to which the skull shape of the Tasmanian wolf and the wolf have converged. This monograph is based on the data, image and film material collected and on more than 300 publications.

Summary in German:
Seit 30 Jahren sammelt der Verfasser Daten über den Beutelwolf. In rund 30 Museen Europas, Australiens und der USA fotografierte und vermaß er Präparate, Schädel und Skelette und trug in mehreren Publikationen zum Wissen über die Art bei. In den Archiven von Launceston und Hobart/Tasmanien sichtete er das z. T. unveröffentlichte Bild- und Textmaterial und befragte letzte Augenzeugen; Wissenschaftlern und Hobbyzoologen verdankt er manche wertvollen Hinweise. Ein Filmdokument aus Hobart wurde in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Göttinger Institut für den Wissenschaftlichen Film (IWF) zu einem Unterrichtsfilm gestaltet.

Wesentlicher Raum wird dem Beutelwolf als Zootier gewidmet sowie den Fragen, inwieweit er als "typischer Läufer" gelten kann und welches Ausmaß die Konvergenzen in der Schädelgestalt von Beutelwolf und Wolf erreicht haben. Basierend auf dem zusammengetragenen Daten-, Bild- und Filmmaterial sowie auf mehr als 300 Publikationen entstand die vorliegende Monographie.
