Die Stadt des Affengottes

Eine wahre Indiana-Jones-Geschichte - eine archäologische Sensation Schon seit dem 16. Jahrhundert gab es Gerüchte über eine Provinz im Regenwald von Honduras, deren Städte reich und prachtvoll seien, ganz besonders die Weiße Stadt, auch Stadt des Affengottes genannt. Immer wieder machten sich Abenteurer und Archäologen auf die Suche nach den Zeugnissen dieser Zivilisation, die offenbar nicht zu den Mayas gehörte. Manchmal stießen sie tatsächlich auf Ruinen, aber eine wirkliche Erforschung war in dem von giftigen Schlangen und tödlichen Krankheitserregern verseuchten und vom Dschungel überwucherten Gelände unmöglich. Erst die moderne Lasertechnik, mit deren Hilfe das Gelände aus der Luft gescannt wird, ermöglichte genauere Hinweise, wo sich größere Ansiedlungen befinden. Um sie vor Ort zu untersuchen muss man sich allerdings auch heute noch auf den beschwerlichen Weg durch den Dschungel machen. Der Schriftsteller und Journalist Douglas Preston schloss sich kürzlich einer archäologischen Expedition an. Sie fand tatsächlich die eindrucksvollen Ruinen einer untergegangenen Stadt, aber sie zahlte am Ende auch einen hohen Preis.

Als überaus erfahrener Herpetologe, dessen Wissen und Erfahrung in zahlreiche Fachbücher Eingang gefunden hat, ist Dieter Glandt prädestiniert, dieses fachlich fundierte und gleichzeitig gut verständliche Buch zu den Lurchen und Kriechtieren zu verfassen. Brillante Fotos renommierter Fotografen sowie didaktisch ansprechende Grafiken runden das Buch ab und erlauben ein Schmökern in diesem für den Wissenschaftler anregenden wie auch Laien verständlichen Werk. Wie lassen sich die Tiere am besten beobachten und bestimmen? Der Autor erläutert einige wichtige Methoden, etwa die immer häufiger genutzten Wasserfallen. Wenn Sie wissen wollen, für welchen Zweck sich welche Methode am besten eignet, dann finden Sie hier wertvolle Entscheidungshilfen. Viele Lurche und Kriechtiere sind stark gefährdet oder vom Aussterben bedroht. Warum dies so ist und was sich dagegen tun lässt, ist ein Schwerpunkt dieses Buches. Auch auf der Suche nach Tipps für die Neuanlage von Kleingewässern und die Pflege älterer Lebensräume sowie Hinweise für den Schutz der hochgradig bedrohten Meeresschildkröten finden sich in dieser Einführung.
