About this book

Language: German

This field guide consists of two independently usable parts that can be bought together or independently, and sets a new standard, as identification of bird species can be achieved in three different ways. This second volume with binomial keys allows systematic determination of all 658 species, even to the level of age and gender. The atlas volume, presents all 658 species in over 2,000 brilliant photos and allow rapid identification by presenting a simplified determination key, that is based on externally visible characters observable in the field. Different plumages are taken into account in both the keys and the photo section. The close links betweetn the different ways of identifying allow an alternation between the volume with keys and the volume with images, which can also be used by itself as a photo-identification book. This way, these books, unique in nature and design, meet the highest professional standards, but also allow beginners to easily identify the correct species.

Summary in German:
Dieses aus zwei unabhängig voneinander benutzbaren Bänden bestehendes Bestimmungswerk setzt neue Maßstäbe, da für das exakte Bestimmen drei unterschiedliche Wege zur Verfügung stehen! Der Schlüsselband ermöglicht die systematische und unmittelbare Bestimmung aller 658 Arten, und zwar nach Alter und Geschlecht! Der Atlasband stellt sämtliche 658 Arten auf über 2.000 brillanten Fotos vor und beinhaltet zusätzlich einen Schnellzugang in Form eines vereinfachten Bestimmungsschlüssels, der nach äußeren, bei der Beobachtung erkennbaren Merkmalen aufgebaut ist! Unterschiedliche Kleider werden sowohl bei den Schlüsseln als auch im Fototeil berücksichtigt. Die enge Verzahnung der Bestimmungswege erlaubt an jeder beliebigen Stelle einen Wechsel zwischen den Schlüsseln und dem nach Familien aufgebauten Bildteil, der auch alleine, wie ein eigenes Foto-Bestimmungsbuch, benutzt werden kann. Damit erfüllen diese in Art und Konzeption einmaligen Bücher höchste professionelle Ansprüche, führen aber auch Anfänger problemlos an die richtige Arterkennung heran.
