About this book

Language: German

The authors of this field determination key to all bumblebees of Germany, Austria and Switzerland have set themselves the goal of enabling the identification of living individuals of the genus Bombus. The main feature is the colour of the hair, which means killing of the animals is not necessary. Morphological features, which are used as a characteristic to distinguish similarly coloured species, can be recognized with some practice using a magnifying glass. The identification key, that allows readers to tell apart workers, queens and drones is not only addressed to biologists, but also to all those who are interested in learning more about these fascinating insects.

Summary in German:
Die Autoren des vorliegenden Feldbestimmungsschlüssels für alle heimischen Hummeln haben sich das Ziel gesetzt, die Bestimmung lebender Individuen der Gattung Bombus zu ermöglichen. Das Hauptmerkmal ist die Färbung der Behaarung, weshalb kein Abtöten der Tiere notwendig ist. Morphologische Merkmale, die als Charakteristikum herangezogen werden, um ähnlichfarbige Arten zu unterscheiden, können mit etwas Übung mittels Lupe erkannt werden. Der Bestimmungsschlüssel, der Arbeiterinnen und Königinnen sowie Drohnen unterscheidet, richtet sich nicht nur an Biologen, sondern an alle Interessierten, die diese faszinierenden Insekten kennenlernen und sicher bestimmen wollen.
