About this book

Language: German

Who is not familier with the well-known "songs" of the cicadas in the Mediterranean or in tropical countries. The fact that there are more than 700 species in the German-speaking part of Central Europe is less well-known, however. On the one hand, this is due to the usually small body size, but also because the overwhelming majority of native cicadas do not produce audible sounds. These fascinating creatures are nevertheless not indispensable, as this book shows. In a general part, the book gives insights into the morphology, development and lifestyle of cicadas, and discusses current topics relevant to nature conservation. The portrait part provides aids for those species that are easily recognizable in the wild, and presents a variety of common and also particularly attractive cicadas with brilliant pictures. The authors succeed in bringing this exciting and ecologically important animal group to the professional world and to all those interested in nature.

Summary in German:
Wer kennt sie nicht, die wohlbekannten "Gesänge" der Zikaden am Mittelmeer oder in tropischen Ländern. Weniger bekannt ist die Tatsache, dass es auch im deutschsprachigen Mitteleuropa mehr als 700 Arten gibt. Das liegt einerseits an der meist geringen Körpergröße, aber auch daran, dass die überwiegende Mehrheit der einheimischen Zikaden keine für uns hörbaren Laute erzeugt. Unverzichtbar sind diese faszinierenden Lebewesen trotzdem nicht, wie dieses Buch zeigt. In einem allgemeinen Teil gibt das Buch Einblicke in Körperbau, Entwicklung und Lebensweise von Zikaden und diskutiert aktuelle naturschutzrelevante Themen. Der Porträtteil liefert Bestimmungshilfen für die im Freiland gut erkennbaren Arten und stellt eine Vielzahl von häufigen und auch besonders attraktiven Zikaden mit brillanten Bildern vor. Den Autoren gelingt es damit, diese spannende und ökologisch bedeutsame Tiergruppe der Fachwelt und allen an der Natur Interessierten näherzubringen.
