About this book

Language: German

Eight species of large bears are currently living on our planet. They include both the largest and heaviest land predators, as well as the small sunbears, which is just the size of a big shepherd dog. Tropical termite and ant-eaters, specialized "bamboo bears", seal hunters and berry pickers – the dietary variety is as great as the differences in climate and terrain type between eternal ice, high mountain pastures and rainforest. In almost every culture, where bears occur or occurred in the area, they play a "leading role" in legends and fairy tales.

In introductory chapters systematics, phylogeny and lifestyle of the large bears are discussed. The subsequent chapters are devoted to each species, and sometimes even subspecies.

Summary in German:
Acht Arten von Großbären leben derzeit auf unserem Planeten. Die größten und schwersten Landraubtiere gehören ebenso zu dieser Familie wie die kleinen, gerade schäferhundgroßen Malaienbären. Tropische Termiten- und Ameisenfresser, spezialisierte »Bambusbären«, Robbenjäger und Beerensammler – die Nahrungsvielfalt ist ebenso groß wie die Unterschiede in Klima und Geländetyp zwischen ewigem Eis, Hochgebirgsweiden und regenwald. In nahezu jedem Kulturkreis, in dessen Raum Bären vorkommen oder vorkamen, spielen sie eine »Hauptrolle« in Sagen und Märchen.

In einleitenden Kapiteln werden Systematik, Stammesgeschichte und Lebensweise der Großbären besprochen. Danach widmen sich die Kapitel den einzelnen Arten, z.T. sogar Unterarten.
