About this book

Language: German

In the new book, the authors present all 72 species of mammals found in Luxembourg, making them known to a broader public: from the six-gram Alcathoe bat to the impressive red deer, from the sympathetic European hedgehog to the little-loved brown rat, and from the widespread wild boar to the wild boar to the only once observed pond bat, they are all represented here. Among them are species that are considered extinct in Luxembourg today (such as European mink or lynx), or as introduced species (non-native species such as traccoon, fallow deer or mink) have found their way into Luxembourg or have been illegally released here.

On each double page numerous facts about each species are displayed clearly. The book is also richly illustrated with many photos of Luxembourg nature photographers. Unfortunately, as native mammals are more and more endangered, just like insects and birds, the two authors also included a longer chapter on mammalian protection in Luxembourg.

Summary in German:
Die Autoren stellen in dem neuen Buch alle 72 für Luxemburg relevante Säugetierarten vor und machen sie damit einem breiteren Publikum bekannt:  Von der sechs Gramm schweren Nymphenfledermaus bis hin zum imposanten Rothirsch, vom sympathischen Braunbrustigel bis zur wenig beliebten Wanderratte, vom weit verbreiteten Wildschwein bis zur einmalig nachgewiesenen Teichfledermaus sind sie alle vertreten. Darunter sind auch Arten, die heute in Luxemburg als ausgestorben gelten (z.B. Europäischer Nerz oder Luchs), beziehungsweise als sogenannte Neozoen (nicht einheimische Arten wie Waschbär, Damhirsch oder Mink) den Weg zu uns gefunden haben oder illegal ausgesetzt wurden.

Auf jeweils einer Doppelseite werden zahlreiche Informationen über jede Art übersichtlich dargestellt. Das Buch ist außerdem reich illustriert mit vielen Fotos von Luxemburger Naturfotographen. Da die heimischen Säugetiere leider ähnlich wie die Insekten und die Vögel immer gefährdeter sind, gehen die beiden Autoren außerdem in einem längeren Kapitel auf den Säugetierschutz in Luxemburg ein.
