Die Bedeutung historischer Vogelnamen - Nichtsingvögel: Band by Peter Bertau PDF

By Peter Bertau

ISBN-10: 3642417329

ISBN-13: 9783642417320

Fast jedes bis ins frühe 20. Jahrhundert erschienene Buch über Vögel enthält neben den damals üblichen wissenschaftlichen viele volkstümliche, sogenannte Trivialnamen. Der Autor Peter Bertau, ehemaliger Biologielehrer mit den Schwerpunkten Evolutionsbiologie und Ornithologie, hat vier Wissenschaftler ausgewählt und die in deren wissenschaftlichen Werken veröffentlichten Trivialnamen gedeutet:

  • Lorenz Oken (1779–1851) lehrte von 1807–1819 in Jena und ab 1833 in Zürich. Er warfare Verfasser der Isis und hat die letzte umfassende Naturgeschichte über die unbelebte und belebte Welt geschrieben.
  • Auch Friedrich Siegmund Voigt (1871–1850) lehrte nach der Zeit der universitätszerstörenden napoleonischen Kriege in Jena, hatte aber andere Schwerpunkte als Oken.
  • Johann Friedrich Naumann (1780–1857) aus dem Anhaltinischen Ziebigk gilt heute als Vater der deutschen Ornithologie. Er verfasste unter meist schwersten Bedingungen von 1822–1844 sein zwölfbändiges Werk Naturgeschichte der Vögel Deutschlands.
  • Alfred Edmund Brehm (1829–1884) hat als erster ein umfassendes Werk nur über Tiere veröffentlicht.

Der Autor deutet über 9000 historische Vogelnamen dieser Wissenschaftler, die sich etwa 480 damals bekannten, meist heimischen Vogelarten zuordnen lassen.

Der erste Band informiert über 290 Arten, zu denen neben Schwimm- und Schnepfenvögeln auch Greifvögel oder Möwen gehören (und heute unwissenschaftlich als Nonpasseriformes zusammengefasst werden). Unter ihnen befinden sich wenige außereuropäische Arten, von denen Reisende Präparate mitgebracht haben.

Der durchweg einfach gehaltene Schreibstil soll nicht nur Spezialisten, sondern auch Laien, die sich für Vogelkunde interessieren, zum blätternden Lesen ermuntern.

In Entertaining Elephants Susan Nance examines elephant behavior—drawing at the clinical literature of animal cognition, studying, and communications—to supply a examine of elephants as actors (rather than gadgets) in American circus leisure among 1800 and 1940. via constructing a deeper realizing of animal habit, Nance asserts, we will extra absolutely clarify the typical historical past of all species.

Entertaining Elephants is the 1st account that makes use of study on animal welfare, wellbeing and fitness, and cognition to interpret the historic checklist, studying how either circus humans and elephants struggled behind the curtain to satisfy the revenue must haves of the leisure company. The booklet doesn't declare that elephants understood, recommended, or resisted the realm of exhibit company as a human cultural or company perform, however it does converse of elephants rejecting the stipulations in their adventure. They lived in one of those parallel truth within the circus, one who was once outlined through their interactions with humans, different elephants, horses, bull hooks, hay, and the elements.

Nance’s research informs and complicates modern debates over human interactions with animals in leisure and past, wondering the belief of human keep watch over over animals and people's claims to talk for them. As sentient beings, those elephants exercised organisation, yet that they had no approach of realizing the human cultures that created their captivity, they usually evidently had no declare on (human) social and political strength. they generally lived lives of obvious desperation.
