| 2000 | | La, (Pp), F:18x25,4 cm, 279 S, zahlr. s/w-Fotos, Zeichnungen und Tabellen. | WG: Buch | Ein interessantes Werk über Vogelnester, Nestbaukonstruktion und mit dem Nestbau uns der Fortpflanzung verbundener Verhaltensweisen bei Vögel und sonstigen Wirbeltieren. | This book provides a broad view of our current understanding of the biology of the nests, bowers and tools made by birds. It illustrates how, among vertebrates, the building abilities of birds are more impressive and consistent than those of any other builders, apart from ourselves, yet birds seem to require no special equipment, and use quite uncomplicated behaviour. In doing so, the book raises general issues in the field of behaviour ecology, including the costs of repruduction, sexual selection and the organisation and complexity of behaviour. Written for students and researchers of animal behaviour, behavioural ecology and ornithology, it will nevertheless make fascinating reading for architects and engineers intrerested in understanding how structures are created by animals. | [E] | |
