Die Anpassungen der Cetacean – was sie so besonders macht –

— German Version only —

Bei diesem Artikel habe ich mehr oder weniger eine Zusammenfassung des entsprechenden Kaptiels im Westheide Rieger produziert, aber ich finde gerade deswegen ist es entsprechend innformativ und dennoch kurz gefasst. (auch alle im Text gezeigten Grafiken und Abbildungen entstammen diesem wunderbaren Buch [1])

Cetacean – where did they come from

I’m fascinated by marine mammals, especially cetaceans since childhood and therefore was glad to take a course during my masters, focusing on their past and development.

This post now is based on a talk I hold during this course about the Evolution of Cetaceans.

Biology of the Eurasian Lynx

Three years ago I finished my master thesis about the Eurasian Lynx, a , I think, fascinating species. Since I read and wrote a lot to put my thesis together, I now want to give you here an extract of my thesis Introduction to give a little background about this big Eurasian Carnivor.

Evolution and Mammals

Mammals are one group of vertebrates. Although not the one with the most extreme adaptations or highest number of species, they are a very diverse group showing great adaptations to environmental challenges and interesting evolutionary history. For me they are more than fascinating which brought me to study this wonderful group of the animal kingdom.

After having a year full of change and lot’s of different impression of biology and research work, I decided to put together this blog. Since I finally think that I found my direction and focus in research, this blogs name, mirrored my main interests which I will follow in the coming time. On this page I put together my own research as well as interesting papers, talks or what I came along during my studies and consider interesting for others.

So have fun reading and don’t hesitate to contact me when questions, ideas or comments came to your mind 🙂

 

Why Evolution?

The understanding where all the life we see at the moment has come from, and how species of different continents show same morphology and behavior fascinated me. Seeing intelligence in different species and specific adaption through different kind of species is impressive and I can’t stop asking more and more questions and search for more and more answers.

I want to know everything and I get surprised sometimes of how the evolution find ways. With more and more knowledge and methods old options get renewed and new insights can be gained. Therefore science is a never ending story and I love to be part of it and go through the way of finding new answers of old and new questions. . .

 

about this site

Born in Berlin, I plan to use this Blog to reveille Passion, Curiosity and Interest for the Mammal Biology.

Since I can remember I have a passion for the Fauna of this world. Although I’m fascinated by everything the crawls, walks, swims and flights, I have to admit that mammals caught my interest the most. After I finished a broader bachelor I took my master degree for focusing on mammals, their physiology, genetic and especially their evolution.

Beside a collection of facts and personal experience I want to present a critical view about the behavior of humans to mammals. I don’t want to denunciate, but to create awareness and interest as well as exchange thinking and opinions.

So have fun looking through, comment, add etc. 🙂

Aus Berlin stammend bin ich eine Biologin, die mit diesem Block in Anderen eine gewisse Begeisterung und Neugier für die Biologie der Säugetiere wecken möchte.

Seit ich mich erinnern kann hege ich eine Leidenschaft für die Welt der Tiere. Obwohl mich alles was krabbelt, läuft, schwimmt und fliegt fasziniert muss ich gestehen, dass mich die uns nächsten Verwandten, die Säugetiere am meisten gefesselt haben. Nach einem etwas allgemeiner gehalten Bachelor habe ich meinen Focus im Master auf die Säugetiere – Ihre Physiologie, Genetik und vor allem Ihre Evolution – gesetzt.

Neben einer Zusammentragung von Fakten und persönlichen Erlebnissen möchte ich auch Kritikpunkte zum Verhalten des Menschen gegenüber dem Tier hier veröffentlichen. Dabei geht es mir nicht um das Anprangern Einzelner sondern vielmehr um das Schaffen von Bewusstsein, dem Wecken von Interesse und dem Austausch von Gedanken.

Viel Spaß beim Stöbern, kommentieren, ergänzen usw. 🙂

Although I’m not a native speaker I know that in this global world the English word reaches further. Therefore I will try to publish my texts in both, my native German and my not so perfect English. Please be forbearing 😉
