About this book

Language: German

High peaks, deep valleys, sunny slopes, shady valleys – the Alpine arc has different habitats and therefore offers an exceptional variety of animals a home.

Säugetiere der Alpen portrays with meaningful photos and informative text, the 86 known species of mammals that live year-round in the alpine zone, from large ungulates to shrews. Photographs illustrate the characteristic features of the landscape to convey information on the typical habitat and its relevance to nutrition, reproduction and distribution in the Alps.

Thus, Säugetiere der Alpen is a comprehensive and detailed identification guide – not only for experienced animal lovers, but also for hikers and climbers who want to familiarize themselves with the large and small mammals of the alpine environment.

Summary in German:
Hohe Gipfel, tiefe Täler, sonnige Flanken, schattige Senken - der Alpenbogen weist unterschiedlichste Lebensräume auf und bietet daher einer außergewöhnlichen Vielfalt an Tierarten ein Zuhause.

Säugetiere der Alpen porträtiert mit aussagekräftigen Fotos und informativen Texten die 86 bisher bekannten Säugetierarten, die ganzjährig in der alpinen Zone leben: von großen Paarhufern über Nagetiere und Fledermäuse bis zu Spitzmäusen.
Mehrere Fotos von jeder Art verdeutlichen die charakteristischen Merkmale, Landschaftsbilder und Grafiken vermitteln Informationen zum typischen Lebensraum, zu Ernährung, Fortpflanzung und Verbreitung in den Alpen.

Damit ist das Buch ein umfassender und detaillierter Bestimmungsführer - nicht nur für bereits erfahrene Tierliebhaber, sondern auch für Wanderer und Bergsteiger, die sich mit den großen und kleinen Säugern des Lebensraums Alpen vertraut machen wollen.
