Das Poster zeigt in übersichtlicher Weise den Stammbaum der Metazoa, der vielzelligen "eigentlichen" Tiere, wie er sich aufgrund neuester Analysen des Phänotyps (äußere Organisation, Anatomie, Cytologie, Ultrastruktur, Entwicklungsgeschichte) darstellt. In dieser 2. Auflage wird das System nach der Argumentation der Phylogenetischen Systematik durch eine Auswahl abgeleiteter charakteristischer Merkmale (Apomorphien) begründet. Die evolutive Betrachtungsweise der tierischen Vielfalt wird durch die Aufgliederung in Organisationsstufen zunehmender Komplexität erleichtert, die höheren Taxa werden durch farbig hinterlegte Felder verdeutlicht und durch kurze informative Stichworte (Artenzahl, Merkmale, Vorkommen) sowie Fotos einzelner Vertreter charakterisiert.Bild und Text bilden so das Konzept einer leicht einprägsamen Informations- und Lernhilfe, die sich besonders zum Studium der organismischen Biodiversität und als Ergänzung zum zweibändigen Lehrbuch WESTHEIDE/RIEGER (Hrsg.): "Spezielle Zoologie" (ISBN 978-3-8274-1835-7) bewährt.Auf der Rückseite des Posters befindet sich ein Stammbaum, der alternative Verzweigungsmuster einer weitgehend auf molekularen Methoden basierenden phylogenetischen Methodik verdeutlicht.
A huge draw on the "2013 National Geographic Live" lecture series, the author shares the passion that led to her world record in mountaineering - First woman-and only the fourth climber ever-to summit all fourteen 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen or high-altitude porters - Though the two climbers are friends, Kaltenbrunner's path to high places has been very different from Edurne Pasaban's record-breaking feat - Positive, uplifting account of a remarkable athleteEffusive, charismatic, tough, Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner is one of the world's most successful high-altitude mountaineers and the first woman to climb all fourteen 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen-and she also eschews high-altitude porters. Mountains of My Heart covers her early years learning to climb in Austria, her personal life, her training as an oncology nurse, and her ever-present passion for mountains, especially the Himalaya. Her love of being in the mountains shines through in her writing: For Gerlinde the important thing was not the race to be the first woman to climb the 8,000-meter peaks, but rather to experience the mountains and climb them in her self-sufficient style. Self-sufficiency did not, however, mean climbing without her husband, Ralf Dujmovits; in 2009, Lhotse became her twelfth and his fourteenth 8,000-meter peak! Kaltenbrunner shares the challenges, dangers, and euphoria of her high-altitude climbs, detailing medical emergencies and her own feelings about being high in the mountains. Her writing is honest, captivating, and unrestrained.
