About this book

Language: German

Bugs, members of the order Hemiptera, form an extremely diverse group of insects and can be observed in almost all habitats. They live in parks and gardens, in forests, on meadows, dry grass or in bogs. They are often found on plants, even in the ground or in and on water. Most species are plant suckers or predators. The unloved bed bug and its relatives, on the other hand, are bloodsuckers. At first glance, bugs are not always recognizable as such, some species resemble beetles, other mosquitoes or ants. In this richly illustrated, practice-oriented nature guide, Dr Jürgen Deckert and Prof Dr Ekkehard Wachmann give a detailed presentation of over 500 of the most important and most common species of bugs found in Germany and give insights into their development, way of life and distribution. Attention is also drawn to the possibility of confusion between similar species. A list of all bug species found in Germany rounds off this identification guide.

Summary in German:
Wanzen bilden eine überaus vielfältige Insektengruppe und können in nahezu allen Lebensräumen beobachtet werden. Sie leben in Parks und Gärten, in Wäldern, auf Wiesen, Trockenrasen oder in Mooren. Oft halten sie sich auf Pflanzen auf, sogar im Boden oder in und auf Gewässern. Die meisten Arten sind Pflanzensauger oder Räuber. Die ungeliebte Bettwanze und ihre Verwandten sind hingegen Blutsauger. Nicht immer sind Wanzen auf den ersten Blick als solche zu erkennen, einige Arten ähneln Käfern, andere Mücken oder Ameisen. Dr. Jürgen Deckert und Prof. Dr. Ekkehard Wachmann stellen in diesem reich bebilderten, praxisorientierten Naturführer über 500 der wichtigsten und häufigsten in Deutschland vorkommenden Wanzenarten ausführlich vor und geben Einblicke in ihre Entwicklung, Lebensweise und Verbreitung. Auch auf Verwechslungsmöglichkeiten ähnlicher Arten wird hingewiesen. Ein Verzeichnis aller in Deutschland vorkommenden Wanzenarten rundet das Bestimmungsbuch ab.
