Malawi
15,75 € *

This new eighth edition of Bradt's Malawi remains the only standalone practical guidebook to this magical East African destination, long known as the 'warm heart of Africa' (and the first country outside Denmark to have a Carlsberg brewery). Malawi is a small country with a big lake - accounting for around a third of its territory - and a big welcome. Written by Philip Briggs, arguably the world's most experienced guidebook author, this new edition benefits from a thorough country-wide update of all the practical information, with the addition of significant new game park accommodation. Dedicated chapters on background information, health and flora and fauna are complemented by a 19-chapter breakdown of the country and 37 maps, making this an ideal companion for backpackers, over-landers, wildlife spotters, birdwatchers and other outdoor enthusiasts. Included in the guide are the many outstanding adventure opportunities: kayaking on the vast lake amongst dug-out canoes; hikes from tea estates up to the heights Mount Mulanje; and watching the 'big five' animals in wonderful natural surroundings. There's also a resurgent music scene, intriguing monuments built by former colonisers and compelling village culture to discover. With the reintroduction of species including lions - and the recent translocation of large numbers of elephants to Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve - Malawi is a wildlife destination to savour. From luxury camps to local guesthouses, from rhino trekking to cycle tours and from crafts to cultural tourism, Bradt's Malawi covers every aspect of your trip.

Rufous-chested Sparrowhawk
39,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Rufous-chested Sparrowhawk (Accipiter rufiventris) is a species of bird of prey in the Accipitridae family. It is found in Angola, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. It forms a superspecies with Eurasian Sparrowhawk (A. nisus) and possibly Madagascar Sparrowhawk (A. madagascariensis) (Ferguson-Lees and Christie 2001). Birds of prey are birds that hunt for food primarily on the wing, using their keen senses, especially vision. They are defined as any bird that hunts other animals. Their talons and beaks tend to be relatively large, powerful and adapted for tearing and/or piercing flesh. In most cases, the females are considerably larger than the males. The term "raptor" is derived from the Latin word "rapere" (meaning to seize or take by force) and may refer informally to all birds of prey, or specifically to the diurnal group. Because of their overall large size and predatory lifestyle, they face distinct conservation concerns.

Biological Studies on some Bivalves
93,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The biomass of the molluscs is very important to ecosystems. In marine environments, molluscs may form the dominant group, especially in their larval stage, but also on soft substrates (bivalves), and on hard substrates, where some molluscs such as Pearl oysters (Pinctada) and mussels may be more important in terms of their biomass than corals (Van Bruggen, 1995). In freshwater environments biomass of molluscs is significant in some environments: for example in temperate countries lake bottoms may be covered with the small bivalves from families Sphaeriidae and Pisidiidae. In tropical areas, the same can be true. Brown (1994) summarises much of the data available on contribution of molluscs to the biomass of freshwater systems in Africa, and shows that prosobranchs contribute the major part in Lakes, such as Chad, Malawi, Tanganyika and Victoria. Molluscs in the man-made Lake Kariba made up nearly the entire biomass of the benthic animals (Prosobranchs 4.1 % and Bivalves 95.8%) (Machena and Kautsky, 1988).

Animals and Ancestors: An Ethnography
180,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ever since the emergence of human culture, people and animals have co-existed in close proximity. Humans have always recognized both their kinship with animals and their fundamental differences, as animals have always been a threat to humans' well-being. The relationship, therefore, has been complex, intimate, reciprocal, personal, and -- crucially -- ambivalent. It is hardly surprising that animals evoke strong emotions in humans, both positive and negative. This companion volume to Morris' important earlier work, The Power of Animals, is a sustained investigation of the Malawi people's sacramental attitude to animals, particularly the role that animals play in life-cycle rituals, their relationship to the divinity and to spirits of the dead. How people relate to and use animals speaks volumes about their culture and beliefs. This book overturns the ingrained prejudice within much ethnographic work, which has often dismissed the pivotal role animals play in culture, and shows that personhood, religion, and a wide range of rituals are informed by, and even dependent upon, human-animal relations.

Wildlife between Empire and Nation in Twentieth...
95,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book traces the emergence of wildlife policy in colonial eastern and central Africa over the course of a century. Spanning from imperial conquest through the consolidation of colonial rule, the rise of nationalism, and the emergence of neocolonial and neoliberal institutions, this book shows how these fundamental themes of the twentieth century shaped the relationships between humans and animals in what are today Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Malawi. A set of key themes emerges—changing administrative forms, militarization, nationalism, science, and a relentlessly broadening constituency for wildlife. Jeff Schauer illuminates how each of these developments were contingent upon the colonial experience, and how they fashioned a web of structures for understanding and governing wildlife in Africa—one which has lasted into the twenty-first century.
