Stimmanalyse beim Uhu Bubo bubo - eine Möglichkeit zur Individualerkennung.

Ornithol. Anzeiger 44: 91-97.

Volltext (PDF) 


Die Wiedererkennung von Individuen spielt bei sehr vielen Tierarten eine wichtige biologische Rolle. Denn für die meisten Vorgänge, an denen ein oder mehrere Individuen beteiligt sind, ist es notwendig, dass diese sich gegenseitig individuell erkennen können. Wenn also derartige individuell charakteristische Signale oft biologisch eine sehr wichtige Rolle spielen, können sie gleichermaßen für einen menschlichen Beobachter interessant sein. Denn sie erlauben es ihm, ein Individuum aus der Entfernung zu identifizieren, ohne es einfangen zu müssen. Die Auswertung der bei dieser Studie erhaltenen Daten zeigt, dass es möglich ist, Uhus sehr präzise anhand ihrer Rufe zu identifizieren. Denn der Uhu hat eine individuelle, charakteristische Stimme, die sich von einem Jahr zum anderen nicht ändert.

CARPENTER, K.E. (ed., 2002)

The living marine resources of the Western Central Atlantic.

Volume 2: Bony fishes part 1 (Acipenseridae to Grammatidae).

FAO Species Identification Guide for Fishery Purposes and American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists Special Publication No. 5.Rome, FAO. 2002. pp. 601-1374.


This 3 volume field guide covers the species of interest to fisheries of the major marine resource groups exploited in the Western Central Atlantic. The area of coverage includes FAO Fishing Area 31. The marine resource groups included are the bivalves, gastropods, cephalopods, stomatopods, shrimps, lobsters, crabs, hagfishes, sharks, batoid fishes, chimaeras, bony  fishes, sea  turtles,  nd marine mammals. The introductory chapter outlines the environmental, ecological, and  biogeographical factors influencing the marine biota, and the basic components of the fisheries in the Western Central Atlantic. Within the field guide, the sections on the resource groups are arranged phylogenetically according to higher taxonomic levels such as class, order, and family. Each resource group is introduced by general remarks on the group, an illustrated section on technical terms and measurements, and a key or guide to orders or families. Each family generally has an account  summarizing family diagnostic characters, biological and fisheries information, notes on similar families occurring in the area, a key to species, a checklist of species and a short list of relevant literature. Families that are less important to fisheries include an abbreviated family account and no detailed species information. Species in the important families are treated in detail (arranged alphabetically by genus and species) and include the species name, frequent synonyms and names of similar species, an illustration, FAO common name(s), diagnostic characters, biology and fisheries information, notes on geographical distribution, and a distribution map. For less important spe-cies, abbreviated accounts are used. Generally, this includes the species name, FAOc ommon name(s), an illustration, a distribution map, and notes on biology, fisheries, anddistribution. The final volume concludes with an index of scientific and common names.

SLATER, P. (1972)

A Field Guide to Australian Birds.

Vol. 1: Non-Passerines.

428 Seiten, davon 64 Farbtafeln, einige s/w-Abbilungen, Verbreitugskarten.
Oliver & Boyd, Edinburgh. ISBN 0-05-002357-8.

Review by Arnold McGill:

Except for Cayley’s What Bird is That? there has been no readily available publication in which all Australian species are illustrated. Mr P. Slater is now filling a great need. The first part of his work is available and the second will, it is understood, soon be completed. A Field Guide to Australian Birds has a much wider scope than Cayley’s book. Apart from the continent and Tasmania it covers the political dependencies Norfolk, Lord Howe, Macquarie, Heard, Christmas and Cocos-Keeling Islands. This is commendable; for, often these outposts of the Commonwealth have been sadly neglected ornithologically and for the first time a fully illustrated guide is available, reasonably priced, covering the whole area except the New Guinea region. It is therefore interesting to see included in an Australian book such species as the Ruddy Crake (Christmas Island), Woodhen (Lord Howe), Weka (Macquarie) and even a new family (Sheathbills), which occurs on Heard Island.

The illustrations throughout are ample and appear well-executed. Of special significance are the outlines of bills of the Procellariiformes, drawn to actual size, thus providing for a direct check with any specimen examined in the hand or found as a beach derelict. Patterns of flight, especially of seabirds, hawks, terns and waders, are also depicted carefully. Allowing for difficulties in reproducing exact colour, the appearance and shades of species are most pleasing. The size of bill of the Red-necked Stint (p.279) is far too long, but care in such matters is widely apparent. Because there might be some confusion in identifying swallows and swifts, the former family has been added after the Coraciidae. The second part of this publication will be as eagerly awaited as was the first. The whole will be a notable contribution to the ornithology of Australia and a very helpful guide to every field-worker.
