About this book

Language: German

Based on nearly 53,000 data points the range, distribution, changes in population levels and distribution, biology, ecology, phenology, threats and conservation are presented of butterfliy species verified to occur in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. In addition, all species are treated that were reported in error from Rhineland-Palatinate, whose earlier occurrences appear doubtful, or which are not known from Palatinate, but which are found in other parts of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate. All pictures are in colour, and show all species and, in many cases, eggs, caterpillars, pupae, natural enemies and Rhineland-Palatine habitats.

The focus is on knowledge gained in the Palatinate itself, which is interpreted by evaluating the extensive Palatinate-specific and national literature. Distribution maps, flight time phenograms complete the texts. With the history of the study of butterflies fauna, its distribution in natural areas, the host plant range, the development of the butterfly from egg to airworthy insect, the legal protection and threat to species and their habitats, a new red list of endangered Palatinate butterflies, tangible protection measures and other aspects treated in separate chapters.

Summary in German:
Auf der Grundlage von knapp 53.000 Daten werden Verbreitung, Vorkommen, Bestands- und Arealveränderungen, Biologie, Ökologie, Phänologie, Gefährdung und Schutz aller in der Pfalz nachgewiesenen Tagfalterarten dargestellt. Zusätzlich abgehandelt werden auch alle Arten, die irrtümlich aus der Pfalz gemeldet sind, deren frühere Vorkommen zweifelhaft erscheinen oder die nicht aus der Pfalz bekannt sind, die man aber in anderen Teilen des Bundeslandes Rheinland-Pfalz findet oder gefunden hat. Alle Abbildungen sind farbig, dargestellt werden sämtliche Arten, in vielen Fällen auch Eier, Raupen, Puppen, natürliche Feinde und pfälzische Lebensräume.

Im Vordergrund stehen Erkenntnisse, die in der Pfalz selbst gewonnen wurden, sie werden unter Auswertung umfangreichen pfalzspezifischen sowie überregionalen Schrifttums interpretiert. Verbreitungskarten und Flugzeit-Phänogramme runden die Texte ab. Mit der Geschichte der Erforschung der Tagfalterfauna, mit ihrer Verbreitung in den Naturräumen, dem Wirtspflanzenspektrum, der Entwicklung des Falters vom Ei bis zum flugfähigen Insekt, dem gesetzlichen Schutz, der Gefährdung der Arten und ihrer Lebensräume, einer neuen‚ Roten Liste der gefährdeten Tagfalter Pfalz’, konkreten Schutzmaßnahmen und weiteren Aspekten befassen sich eigenständige Kapitel.
