About this book

Language: German

Hardly any other animal species in Central Europe has had such a successful comeback as the beaver. A true builder is back again. By damming, felling, and building, beavers create an effective biotope network of entire water systems both on a micro-scale and on a landscape level and allow disappeared species to return. Wherever beavers clear up riparian trees, permanently damming ponds and creating wilderness, they provide ecosystem services such as water storage, sediment filtration or groundwater recharge. This book aims to sharpen the eye for the interplay of beaver activity and biodiversity and to break a lance for the coexistence of humans and beavers. It promotes a more conscious use of our waters and natural resources in general. This book, equipped with excellent photos, is based on years of research and daily field work.

Summary in German:
Kaum eine andere Tierart Mitteleuropas hatte ein so erfolgreiches Comeback wie der Biber. Ein wahrer Baumeister ist wieder zurück. Durch Stauen, Fällen und Bauen schaffen Biber sowohl im Mikrobereich wie auch auf Landschaftsebene einen wirksamen Biotopverbund von ganzen Gewässersystemen und lassen verschwundene Arten zurückkehren. Überall, wo Biber Ufergehölze auflichten, dauerhaft Teiche aufstauen und Wildnis schaffen, erbringen sie Ökosystem-Dienstleistungen wie Wasserspeicherung, Sedimentfilter oder Grundwasserneubildung. Dieses Buch will den Blick schärfen für das Zusammenspiel von Biberaktivität und Artenvielfalt und eine Lanze brechen für das Miteinander von Mensch und Biber. Es wirbt für einen bewussteren Umgang mit unseren Gewässern und natürlichen Ressourcen ganz allgemein. Dieses mit exzellenten Fotos ausgestatte Buch basiert auf jahrelanger Forschung und täglicher Arbeit vor Ort.
