About this book

Language: German

The range of ​​the White-tailed Eagle in Europe extends from Scandinavia to the Balkans and to the Urals. In Central Europe, this distinctive bird was found in all suitable habitats. Until well into the last century they were hunted, shot and caught in traps, their eggs robbed, and their young removed. Soon enough there were nature lovers who fought to protect the eagle. Slowly several breeding pairs had again become established when the first edition of the volume by Wolfgang Fischer appeared. The books is now in its fourth edition, and the author is able to point out the good results in the development of the stock figures of animals due to protective measures. However, the intensive study of the animals has also brought new insights. The volume describes primarily the northern Eurasian form, while the forms occurring in the New World, Africa and Asia are treated in accordance with our knowledge, as well many personal observations of the animals that were made by the author both in the wild and in the aviary of the Tierpark Berlin.

Summary in German:
Das Verbreitungsgebiet des Seeadlers erstreckte sich in Europa von Skandinavien bis zur Balkanhalbinsel und bis zum Ural. In Mitteleuropa waren diese markanten Vögel in allen zusagenden Landschaften zu finden. Bis weit ins letzte Jahrhundert hinein wurde ihnen nachgestellt, sie wurden geschossen und in Fallen gefangen, die Eier geraubt, die Jungen ausgehorstet. Rechtzeitig genug fanden sich verantworungsbewußte Naturfreunde, die sich für den Schutz des Seeadlers einsetzten. Langsam wurden es wieder mehrere Brutpaare, als die erste Auflage des Bandes von Wolfgang Fischer erschien. Jetzt liegt die vierte wesentlich überarbeitete Auflage als Nachdruck vor, und hier ist es dem Verfasser bereits möglich, auf gute Erfolge bei der Entwicklung der Bestandszahlen der Tiere aufgrund des Schutzes hinweisen zu können. Die intensive Beschäftigung mit den Tieren brachte aber auch neue Erkenntnisse. Der Band beschreibt in erster Linie die Nominatform des nördlichen Eurasiens, die in der Neuen Welt, Afrika und Asien vorkommenden Arten sind entsprechend unserem Kenntnisstand behandelt, dabei wurden vom Verfasser viele eigene Beobachtungen der Tiere in der freien Wildbahn und in der Voliere des Tierparks Berlin verarbeitet.
