Der Insektenband dieses seit Jahrzehnten eingeführten und hervorragend bewährten Bestimmungswerks liegt nun in einer durchgesehenen 11. Auflage vor. Bereits der Text und die Abbildungen der 10. Auflage waren grundlegend überarbeitet und stark verbessert worden. Jetzt haben die Autoren nochmals eine Aktualisierung der Nomenklatur, der Verbreitungsangaben und der Literatur vorgenommen. Mehrere Bestimmungstabellen wurden völlig neu ausgearbeitet, viele andere verbessert. So wird das Werk eine Spitzenposition unter den einschlägigen Bestimmungsbüchern behalten. Alle Insekten, die in Deutschland und angrenzenden Regionen vorkommen, können fast immer bis zur Familie, bei vielen Gruppen sogar bis zur Art bestimmt werden. • Hervorzuheben sind Bestimmungstabellen für Larven, die bei den meisten anderen Büchern fehlen, obwohl man ihnen in der Natur besonders oft begegnet. • Generell wurde auf Merkmale verzichtet, die man nur nach einer Zerlegung der Objekte oder mit einer speziellen Präparation erkennen kann. • Der gestiegenen Bedeutung des Naturschutzes ist ein eigenes Kapitel gewidmet. Dieses Werk ist unentbehrlich für Studierende der Biologie und verwandter Disziplinen an Hoch- und Fachschulen, für Biologielehrer, Entomologen, Phytopathologen, Forst- und Landwirte, Faunisten, Ökologen, Naturschutzfachleute, Landschaftsplaner und Gutachter.

Die Borger sind in ihrer Art kaum von Menschen zu unterscheiden, aber winzig klein und alles, was sie besitzen, ist geborgt – sogar ihre Namen. Seit Pod, Homily und Arrietty ihr Zuhause unter den Dielen eines viktorianischen Landhauses verlassen mussten, sind sie auf der Flucht. Doch kaum haben sie Unterschlupf bei ihren Verwandten im Forsthaus gefunden, da bahnt sich auch schon die nächste Katastrophe an: Arriettys Freund Tom und dessen Großvater, die einzigen menschlichen Bewohner des Forsthauses, ziehen fort. Von wem sollen die Borger aber in Zukunft etwas borgen, wenn es keine Menschen mehr gibt? Pod, Homily und Arrietty bleibt keine Wahl: Sie müssen sich eine neue Bleibe suchen. Und die finden sie in einem alten, am Flussufer gestrandeten Wasserkessel. Schön gemütlich, vor allem, als ein Unwetter aufzieht. Dass der Fluss vor lauter Regen über das Ufer tritt und den Wasserkessel wegspült – damit hat ja nun wirklich niemand gerechnet. Und so beginnt für die kleinen Borger eine neue, gefährliche Fahrt ins Ungewisse... Das dritte Abenteuer der kleinen Borger – mit märchenhaft schönen Illustrationen von Emilia Dziubak Ein Meisterwerk voller Poesie und Atmosphäre – ausgezeichnet mit dem Lewis-Carroll-Shelf-Award

'Vibrant, fascinating, poetic - a year in living things: all the things we love, all the things we wish we could, all the little things we step over and never know - the best of British wildlife from two superb naturalists and writers' CHRIS PACKHAM From blackbirds, beavers and beetles to tawny owls, natterjack toads and lemon slugs. Every day of the year, winter or summer, in every corner of the British Isles, there's plenty to see if you know where - and how - to look. From encounters with the curious black redstart, which winters on our rocky coasts, to the tiny green snowdrop shoots that are the first sign that spring might be round the corner. And from the blossom-time and dawn choruses of April and May into the abundant noisiness of summer, where days start with hawker dragonflies and drowsy bumblebees and end with glow-worms and ghost moths; to autumn when in the early morning mist of London's Richmond Park male red deer lock horns in competition for a mate. Nature is always full of surprises - whether it's the strange behaviour of clothes moths or the gruesome larder of the strike. Distilling two lifetimes' knowledge, expert insight and enthusiasm, award-winning authors and passionate naturalists Brett Westwood and Stephen Moss take us through the year, day by day, sharing the unexpected delights that we can experience in our skies, beaches, rivers, fields, forests and back gardens. There are all kinds of adventures waiting on your doorstep, any day of the year, all you need is Wonderland.

Leben aus der Botschaft des Kreuzes - was bedeutet das für uns heute? Klaus Berger und Clemens betrachten gemeinsam das wichtigste Symbol des christlichen Glaubens. Beide verbindet nicht nur eine langjährige Freundschaft, sondern auch der Wunsch, den gemeinsamen Glauben an das Kreuz und die Auferstehung in eine frische, neue Sprache zu übersetzen. Sie wählen ganz unterschiedliche Betrachtungsweisen und Zugänge und kommen doch zu dem selben Schluss: "Das Kreuz steht für die Wende, dass die Liebe stärker ist!"

The Orchid Hunter

A young botanist's search for happiness

In the summer after leaving school, a young botanist sets out to fulfil a childhood dream - to find every species of orchid native to the British Isles... He has just a few months to complete his quest - no one has ever done it before - and it will require ingenuity, stamina and a large dose of luck. Like Two Owls at Eton and My Family and Other Animals, this is a charming, witty account of a precocious adolescent's obsession with the natural world. As he battles the vagaries of the British climate in his clapped-out van, feverishly chasing each emerging bloom, Leif Bersweden takes the reader on a remarkable botanical journey. This study of the 52 native species is a fantastic gateway into the compendious world of orchids - one that will open your eyes to the rare hidden delights to be found on hilltops and riverbanks, in woodland, marsh and field.

The European Garden Flora Flowering Plants

The European Garden Flora is the definitive manual for the accurate identification of cultivated ornamental flowering plants. Designed to meet the highest scientific standards, the vocabulary has nevertheless been kept as uncomplicated as possible so that the work is fully accessible to the informed gardener as well as to the professional botanist. This new edition has been thoroughly reorganised and revised, bringing it into line with modern taxonomic knowledge. Although European in name, the Flora covers plants cultivated in most areas of the United States and Canada as well as in non-tropical parts of Asia and Australasia. Volume 5 completes the series, and includes many important ornamental families, such as Labiatae, Solanaceae, Scrophulariaceae, Acanthaceae, Campanulaceae, and the largest family of Dicotyledons, the Compositae.
