About this book

Language: German

Wolves are one of the most fascinating animals in general. Hardly any animal has played such a central role in the cultural history of the indigenous people in the northern hemisphere. The wolf is found in fairy tales and legends, so much so that superstition, fear and ignorance meant that wolves were almost eradicated in Europe. Today we know that the wolf is neither beast nor brother, but an intelligent predator that is characterized by strong pack behaviour. Faszination Wolf provides information about the life, biology and behaviour of wolves. Features an audio CD.

Summary in German:
Wölfe gehören zu den faszinierendsten Tieren überhaupt. Kaum ein Tier spielte in der Kulturgeschichte der Urvölker auf der Nordhalbkugel eine so zentrale Rolle. Der Wolf findet sich in Märchen und Legenden und ruft bis heute bei vielen Menschen Gänsehaut und Schaudern hervor. Aberglaube, Angst und Unwissen führten dazu, dass er im Laufe der Zeit in Europa fast ausgerottet wurde. Heute wissen wir, dass der Wolf aber weder Bestie noch Bruder, sondern ein intelligentes Raubtier ist, das durch ein ausgeprägtes Rudelverhalten gekennzeichnet ist. Dieses Buch informiert über seine Lebensweise, Biologie und Verhalten, den Wolf als Stammvater des Hundes, über seine Gefährdung und seinen Schutz und schildert die aktuelle Bestandssituation. Denn die ersten Wölfe kommen zurück ... Mit den Stimmen der Wölfe auf CD.
