About this book

Language: Finnish

Siivekkäät Ihmeet is a book about Finnish Professor Kauri Mikkola's expeditions to Siberia and North America – to taiga and mountains, the Altai steppe and spruce forests of the Baikal, the Ottawa wetlands, Colorado mountains and the Yukon wilderness. Kauri Mikkola's colorful writing takes you to beautiful scenery in the company of several nature specialists.

The richly illustrated work reveals the secrets of butterflies, birds and plants in mountainous and boreal regions, tells stories of survival in different cultures, and introduces you to top entomologists from the USA, Canada and Russia. Siivekkäät Ihmeet is a unique expedition in itself, taking you to regions that only a few have visited.

Siivekkäät Ihmeet is a true reading experience for everyone interested in nature, and answers many questions and queries.

Summary in Finnish:
Radion ja TV:n Luontoilloistakin tutun edesmenneen professori Kauri Mikkolan tutkimusmatkoja halki steppien, taigan ja vuoriston. Altain aroilta Baikalille ja Siperian syvimpiin kuusikoihin Ottawan soilta Coloradon vuorille ja Yukonin erämaahan yhdessä maailman luontoasiantuntijoiden kanssa.

Runsaasti kuvitettu teos paljastaa arktisten perhosten saloja, arojen lintuja, vuoriston kasvierikoisuuksia – kuvailee selviytymistarinoita vieraalla maalla ja esittelee hyönteistutkijoiden huippuja. Tämä kirja vie sinut mukanaan syvälle luonnon yksityiskohtiin alueille, joille vain harva on päässyt vierailemaan
