This book is the first monograph on one of the most beautiful and admired birds in the world. The Gyrfalcon is the world's largest and most powerful falcon - a truly awe-inspiring bird which inhabits the ferociously inhospitable Arctic taiga, from Greenland and Iceland right across Siberia and northern Canada. Its plumage varies from a dark mottled grey to pure white - the white birds in particular are coveted by birders and falconers. Like other titles in the series, it covers all aspects of the species' biology, taxonomy, distribution, status and historical associations with mankind. The result is an exhaustively researched and enthrallingly readable biography of a spectacular bird, illustrated throughout with photographs and line drawings. "a good read, presenting much previously inaccessible information, as well as some interesting insights into some of the most remote and inhospitable places on earth." British Birds

The Snowy Owl - possibly the world's sexiest bird - needs little introduction. This massive white owl breeds throughout the Arctic, wherever there are voles or lemmings to hunt, from Scandinavia through northern Russia to Canada and Greenland. Southerly movements in winter see North American birds travel as far south as the northern United States, while infrequent vagrants on the Shetlands and other northern isles are a magnet for birders. The Snowy Owl gives this popular bird the full Poyser treatment, with sections on morphology, distribution, palaeontology and evolution, habitat, breeding, diet, population dynamics, movements, interspecific relationships and conservation, supported by some fabulous photography. A major strength is the availability to the authors of Russian literature, which is generally out of reach for Western scientists.

Arctic birds have long held a fascination for Richard Vaughan, whose trips to the region, watching and photographing birds, have provided the raw material for a number of previous publications. Here, he focuses on the historical aspects of Arctic ornithology, bringing to life not only the birds but the activities of those who have lived with them, or explored in search of them. A general introduction to the Arctic and the forces that shape its bird populations and their biology is followed by sections on native peoples, whaling and discovery ships, and the famous ornithologists who have investigated these often inhospitable habitats. Conservation, both of individual species and of habitats, is discussed against the background of threats to the Arctic environment. Since half the Arctic lies in Russia, detailed consideration is naturally given to Arctic bird studies in that country, as well as in North America and Greenland. Purely ornithological interludes look in detail at the Gyrfalcon, Knots, Ross's Gull, geese, divers, Snowy Owls and many more. The book includes practical advice on how to visit the Arctic and where and when to go. Richard Vaughan's own photographs and the drawings of Swedish artist Gunnar Brusewitz do real justice to the beauty of both the environment and its birds. Illustrated by Gunnar Brusewitz

Das Thema "Fundrecht" ist für die meisten Gemeinden eine unliebsame Pflichtaufgabe, die mit viel Aufwand verbunden ist. Die Rechtsmaterie ist der konkurrierenden Gesetzgebung zuzurechnen. Durch die Vorschriften des Fundrechts im Bürgerlichen Gesetzbuch hat der Bund von seinem Gesetzgebungsrecht Gebrauch gemacht. Die Länder haben deshalb die Möglichkeit, Regelungen zum (Verwaltungs-) Verfahren zu treffen. Dies ist in allen Bundesländern geschehen und in das Werk eingearbeitet. Aufgabe des Werks "Fundrecht in der kommunalen Praxis" ist der Praxis das tägliche Geschäft des Fundwesens durch rechtliche Hinweise, Muster und Zusammenfassungen der Thematik näher zu bringen und Hilfestellung zu geben. Änderungen des Gesetzgebers mit der Zielrichtung der Rechtsklarheit, das Fundrecht den heutigen Lebensbedingungen und Wirtschaftsverhältnissen anzupassen, sind in diesem Werk berücksichtigt.
