About this book

Language: German

Next to the seas and forests, grasslands are the world's last major ecosystems: major and yet almost forgotten habitats where many rare animals are at home. In this wonderful picture book photographer Ingo Arndt has portrayed the seemingly endless grasslands of our earth and its inhabitants in breathtakingly beautiful, unseen shots. His travels took him to the prairies and Everglades of North America, into the Pampas, the Llanos and Cerrados of South America, the African savannas, the steppes of Mongolia, the largest bamboo forest in China and the vast reed beds in the Danube Delta. Besides monumental landscapes and touching animal portraits, artful detail recordings, made in a special open-air studio, show the various grass types. By reducing grasses to their essentials, the beauty of this seemingly unattractive plant group is revealed in all its facets. The images are accompanied by knowledgeable texts of renowned ethologist and sociobiologist Prof. Dr. Jürgen Tautz.

Summary in German:
Grasgebiete sind neben den Meeren und Wäldern die letzten großen Ökosysteme der Welt: wichtige und doch fast vergessene Lebensräume, in denen viele seltene Tiere zuhause sind. In diesem wunderbaren Bildband hat der Ausnahme-Fotograf Ingo Arndt die scheinbar endlosen Grasländer unserer Erde und ihre Bewohner in atemberaubend schönen, nie gesehenen Aufnahmen porträtiert. Seine Reisen führten ihn in die Prärien und Everglades Nordamerikas, in die Pampas, Llanos oder Cerrados Südamerikas, die Savannen Afrikas, die Steppen der Mongolei, den größten Bambuswald Chinas und zu den ausgedehnten Schilfgebieten im Donaudelta. Neben monumentalen Landschaftsaufnahmen und berührenden Tierporträts zeigen kunstvolle Detailaufnahmen, die in einem speziellen Freiluftstudio entstanden, die verschiedenen Grastypen. Indem er Gräser auf das Wesentliche reduziert, offenbart sich die Schönheit dieser scheinbar reizlosen Pflanze in all ihren Facetten. Begleitet werden die Bilder von kenntnisreichen Texten des renommierten Verhaltensforschers und Soziobiologen Prof. Dr. Jürgen Tautz.
