About this book

Language: German

Martens, polecats, minks and weasels are nimble animals and agile hunters. They are – with the possible exception of the stone marten, which often resides in residential areas and causes trouble there – difficult to observe. This may be one reason that in many places there is little knowledge of on population levels of different species. Except for stone marten and minks, most available evidence for the other points to a decline. They were therefore at European level included in lists to either limit their use or offer absolute protection.

This book aims to fill gaps in knowledge and introduce this almost invisible co-tenant of our cultural landscape. Information about their lifestyle and habitat, reproduction, diet and hunting strategies is complemented with stories about their living together with man, on the hunt for their pelts, research experiences, partnerships and conflicts in urban areas and the threats and most recent conservation efforts.

Summary in German:
Marder, Iltis, Nerz und Wiesel sind flinke Tiere und wendige Jäger. Sie sind – vielleicht mit Ausnahme des Steinmarders, der sich häufig auch in Siedlungsräumen aufhält und da ab und zu gar für Ärger sorgt – schwierig zu beobachten. Dies mag mit ein Grund dafür sein, dass vielerorts wenig Wissen über Bestände der verschiedenen Arten vorliegt. Außer bei Steinmarder und Mink gibt es für alle andern Arten nach wie vor viele Hinweise auf einen Rückgang. Sie wurden deshalb auf europäischer Ebene in verschiedene Listen für beschränkte Nutzung oder absoluten Schutz aufgenommen.

Dieses Buch will Wissenslücken schließen und die kaum sichtbaren Mitbewohner unserer Kulturlandschaft vorstellen. Informationen über ihre Lebensweise und Lebensräume, die Fortpflanzung, Ernährung und Jagdstrategien werden ergänzt mit Geschichten rund um das Zusammenleben mit dem Menschen: über die Jagd auf die Tiere um ihrer Pelze willen, Forschungserlebnisse, Partnerschaften und Konflikte im Siedlungsraum und die Gefährdung und Schutzbemühungen in neuster Zeit.
