About this book

Language: German

Dragonflies have been flying around the Earth for 300 million years already, and at the time they reached wingspans of about 70 centimeters. While many other animal species have become extinct over the course of time, the iridescent insects have survived. They are not only pretty to look at, they are also bioindicators of the quality of waters and wetlands.

Even today there are some 5,600 species of this largest insects, and nationwide in Germany there are about 80 species. From the northernmost state of Schleswig-Holstein 65 species are known.

The Libellen Schleswig-Holsteins is a comprehensive description of the distribution, population status, and ecology of, and threats facing, the species in this state. The text is illustrated by numerous photographs, graphics and tables. It also deals with the dragonfly species that occur in neighboring regions and are expected to show up in the future in Schleswig-Holstein. In addition to the faunal part, the work contains detailed chapters on other aspects of odonatology such as morphology and biology, the importance of different types of water, long-term development of stocks, legal safeguards and measures put in place to conserve species.

The book is aimed not only at professionals and those working professionally with dragonflies, but also at all interested laypeople who are fascinated by these often colourful flying acrobats.

Summary in German:
Libellen flogen schon vor 300 Millionen Jahre über die Erde, damals erreichten sie Flügelspannweiten von über 70 Zentimeter. Während viele andere Tierarten im Laufe der Erdgeschichte ausgestorben sind, haben die bunt schillernden Insekten überlebt. Sie sind nicht nur hübsch anzusehen, sie geben auch Hinweise auf die Qualität der Gewässer und Feuchtbiotope.

Noch heute zählen die rund 5.600 Arten weltweit zu den größten Insekten, bundesweit sind es ungefähr 80 Arten. Aus dem nördlichsten Bundesland Schleswig-Holstein sind 65 Arten bekannt.

Die Libellen Schleswig-Holsteins gibt eine umfassende Beschreibung der Verbreitung, Bestandssituation, Ökologie und Gefährdung der in diesem Bundesland vorkommenden Arten. Die textliche Darstellung wird durch zahlreiche Fotos, Grafiken und Tabellen ergänzt und veranschaulicht. Ebenfalls behandelt werden die Libellenarten, die in benachbarten Regionen vorkommen und zukünftig in Schleswig-Holstein erwartet werden. Neben dem faunistischen Teil enthält das Werk ausführliche Kapitel zu weiteren Aspekten der Libellenkunde, wie Körperbau und Biologie, die Bedeutung unterschiedlicher Gewässertypen, langfristige Entwicklung der Bestände sowie rechtliche Schutzbestimmungen und durchgeführte Artenhilfsmaßnahmen.

Das Buch richtet sich nicht nur an Fachleute und Personen, die sich beruflich mit Libellen beschäftigen, sondern auch an alle interessierten Laien, die von diesen vielfach farbenfrohen Flugakrobaten fasziniert sind.
