About this book

Language: German

The animal species found in our cave systems, which have developed very different strategies to survive there, are in no way inferior in terms of the diversity of the fauna found in forests or lakes. In addition to animals that only visit caves temporarily, there are numerous "real" cave animals, which are mostly blind and pigmentless. Many of the species that live in underground waters also occur outside of caves in the groundwater. This unrivalled nature guide, supported by brilliant pictures, introduces all the animals found in Germany's caves and provides information about their appearance, the region where they are found and similar species. The authors succeed in bringing the fascinating and mysterious cave animals closer to the professional world and all those interested in nature, to find them, to recognize them and to identify them themselves.

Summary in German:
Die in unseren Höhlensystemen vorkommenden Tierarten, die ganz unterschiedliche Strategien entwickelt haben, um dort zu überleben, stehen in puncto Vielfalt der in Wäldern oder Seen anzutreffenden Fauna in nichts nach. Neben Tieren, die Höhlen nur vorübergehend aufsuchen, gibt es zahlreiche "echte" Höhlentiere, welche zumeist blind und pigmentlos sind. Viele der in unterirdischen Gewässern lebenden Arten kommen zudem auch außerhalb von Höhlen im Grundwasser vor. Dieser konkurrenzlose und durch brillante Bilder unterstützte Naturführer stellt alle in Deutschlands Höhlen vorkommenden Tiere vor und informiert über Aussehen, Fundregion und ähnliche Arten. Den Autoren gelingt es damit, die ebenso faszinierenden wie geheimnisvollen Höhlentiere der Fachwelt und allen an der Natur Interessierten näherzubringen, sie zu finden, zu erkennen und selbst zu bestimmen.
