About this book

Language: German

Unbeknownst to most, animal and plant species from other continents immigrate with us. Some of them like it so well here that they multiply rapidly and suddenly cause considerable damage: They harry, indeed displace, the native flora and fauna, they damage our crops, they clog pipes, bring down embankments, cause people and animals diseases for which we as Europeans are not prepared. In some cases, the alien invaders were deliberately imported and released by man, but many others are stowaways of the global trade in our environment. This confronts us with species that are particularly adaptable, proliferate especially quickly and often have no natural enemies.

This book portrays 24 species of animals and plants that cause problems in Europe and whose control is a major challenge. However, it also shows the paths that have to be taken so that the alien invaders cannot expand indefinitely.

Summary in German:
Unbemerkt wandern Tier- und Pflanzenarten von anderen Kontinenten bei uns ein. Einigen von ihnen gefällt es so gut, dass sie sich rasant vermehren und plötzlich beträchtliche Schäden verursachen: Sie bedrängen, ja verdrängen die einheimische Flora und Fauna, sie schädigen unsere Nutzpflanzen, sie verstopfen Leitungen, lassen Böschungen einstürzen, bringen Menschen und Tieren Krankheiten, auf die wir Europäer nicht vorbereitet sind. In einigen Fällen wurden die unheimlichen Eroberer von Menschen bewusst importiert und ausgesetzt, viele andere landeten als blinde Passagiere des globalen Handels in unserer Umwelt. Wir sehen uns konfrontiert mit Arten, die besonders anpassungsfähig sind, sich besonders rasch vermehren und oftmals keine natürlichen Feinde haben.

Dieses Buch porträtiert 24 Arten aus der Tier- und Pflanzenwelt, die in Europa Probleme verursachen und deren Bekämpfung eine große Herausforderung ist. Es zeigt aber auch die Wege auf, die beschritten werden müssen, damit die unheimlichen Eroberer sich nicht grenzenlos ausdehnen können.
