About this book

Language: German

South America is poor in indigenous ungulates. In addition to tapirs, New World camels and peccaries, there are only a few representatives of the deer family. Unfortunately, little research has been done on their biology. In addition to the preferred occupation of the zoologists with animal groups restricted to the Neotropical region (e.g. anteaters and New World monkeys), the hidden way of life and the sometimes difficult to access habitats contribute to this. Because of the difficulties in obtaining and keeping them, South American deer are rarely seen in European zoos. Much is still unclear both on the biology and the systematics of the two genera treated here. The aim of this volume is to introduce the two genera Pudu and Mazama to a larger audience. The widely scattered literature has been evaluated in order to provide the most comprehensive possible picture of our current knowledge of the biology of pudus and brocket deer. The information on anatomy and keeping in zoos is deliberately kept short. The author is aware of the fact that the solution of many questions must be left to future research.

Summary in German:
Südamerika ist arm an einheimischen Huftieren. Neben Tapiren, Neuweltkamelen und Nabelschweinen gibt es nur einige Vertreter aus der Familie der Hirsche. Ihre Biologie ist bisher leider nur wenig erforscht. Dazu trugen neben der bevorzugten Beschäftigung der Zoologen mit auf die neotropische Region beschränkten Tiergruppen (z. B. Zahnarme und Neuweltaffen) vor allem die versteckte Lebensweise und die teilweise nur schwer zugänglichen Lebensräume bei. Wegen der Schwierigkeiten bei der Beschaffung und bei ihrer Haltung sind die südamerikanischen Hirsche auch nur selten in europäischen Zoos zu sehen. Sowohl in der Biologie als auch in der Systematik der beiden behandelten Gattungen ist noch vieles unklar. Anliegen des vorliegenden Bandes ist es, die beiden Gattungen Pudu und Mazama einem größeren Leserkreis vorzustellen. Das weit verstreute Schrifttum wurde ausgewertet, um ein möglichst umfassendes Bild unseres gegenwärtigen Wissens über die Biologie von Pudus und Spießhirschen zu geben. Dabei werden die Angaben zur Anatomie und zur Haltung im Zoo bewußt kurz gehalten. Der Autor ist sich der Tatsache bewußt, daß die Lösung vieler Fragen zukünftigen Untersuchungen vorbehalten bleiben muß.
