Birds of Germany

€ 7.99 *

Germany lies in the temperate climatic zone in the transition between the westerly wind sea climate and the continental climate. The altitude ranges from sea level to 2962 m on the Zugspitze in the Alps. 32% of the surface is covered with forest; this makes Germany one of the most forested countries in the European Union. The vegetation is largely determined by forestry, that is, the deciduous forest that occurs naturally here has been largely replaced by coniferous forest; efforts are currently being made to reverse these measures. Germany has 16 national parks. The largest is in the Wadden Sea, which serves as a resting place for 10 to 12 million birds and therefore has been declared UNESCO World Heritage Nature Site. There are also 17 biosphere reserves and 105 nature parks. In addition, BirdLife International has recognized more than 500 areas of global importance for bird life and biodiversity (IBAs). Although there are no endemics in Germany, the largest proportion of the global Red Kite population breeds here. Climate change has resulted in a number of distribution areas being shifted to the north, so that more and more species can be observed in Germany, e.g. Bee-eater, Little Egret and others that were previously only known from the Mediterranean.

This E-book bird guide for "Germany" has been built at 11.06.2024, based upon our data base and our image archive using our default settings, and saved in two formats. Thereby it is made sure that the e-book can be displayed on virtually all devices and if applicable be printed out with a compact page size.
A free online-preview to the main section of the bird guide to Germany - of course at today's state of the data base and the archive - is available at Bird guides customized. There you can not only obtain the current edition of "Birds of Germany", but also modify the form in many ways.
