About this book

The 2018 reprint of this German avifauna has split volume 2.1 into two new volumes, this volume 2.1.1. which covers the families Dendrocygnidae to Anatidae, and a forthcoming volume 2.1.2. which will cover Pandionidae to Falconidae.

With its large river systems and the presence of Lake Constance, Baden-Württemberg is considered one of the most important resting and wintering areas for waterfowl in Central Europe. The state ornithologists are among the most meticulous data collectors and connoisseurs of the local birdlife. Accordingly, much is known on the Anseriformes, the whistling ducks, rudder ducks, swans, geese and ducks of Baden-Württemberg. The volume provides detailed knowledge on seasonal occurrence, distribution, breeding grounds and population development, resting and winter populations, and the ecology and conservation status of nearly 100 species of ducks.

Summary in German:
Fortsetzung des Grundlagenwerks - Dendrocygnidae bis Anatidae. Mit seinen großen Fließgewässersystemen und dem Bodensee gilt Baden-Württemberg als eines der wichtigsten Rast- und Überwinterungsgebiete für Wasservögel in Mitteleuropa. Die Ornithologen des Bundeslandes zählen zu den akribischsten Datensammlern und Kennern der heimischen Vogelwelt. Entsprechend viel ist zu den Anseriformes, den Pfeifgänsen, Ruderenten, Schwänen, Gänsen und Enten Baden-Württembergs bekannt. Das Werk gibt detailliertes Wissen zu saisonalem Auftreten, Verbreitung, Brutgebieten und Bestandsentwicklung, zu Rast- und Winterbeständen sowie zu Ökologie und Gefährdungsstatus von fast 100 Arten der Entenvögel.
