About this book

Language: German

Latein für Vogelbeobachter is an accessible, informative, and beautifully illustrated guide to the mysteries of ornithological Latin. It reveals the meaning, origin, and pronunciation of Latin binomials, helping readers to get to grips with the highly useful information that these names contain, and also to communicate more effectively with other birders. Latein für Vogelbeobachter features 'Bird Profile' pages which look in depth at specific genera. Its 'Great Ornithologist' spreads reveal the fascinating stories of the men and women who found and named many of the birds we love; its "Latin in Action" feature boxes provide tips that will help readers apply the lore of Latin names to their own birding.

Summary in German:
Warum sind so viele Vögel nach antiken Sagengestalten benannt? Und warum werden Würger auch als ›Metzgervögel‹ bezeichnet? Latein für Vogelbeobachter stellt mehr als 3 000 vogelkundliche Begriffe vor und erklärt ihre Herkunft sowie ihre Bedeutung. Mehr als ein Dutzend Gattungen werden im Detail beschrieben, charakteristische Merkmale wie Vogelfärbung, Vogelgesang und Federn besprochen. Darüber hinaus porträtieren die Autoren außergewöhnliche Ornithologen wie den Verhaltensforscher Konrad Lorenz oder den Vogelkundler James Bond, der Ian Fleming als Vorbild für seinen Agenten 007 diente.
