Caroline Ring: Wanderer zwischen den Welten. Was Vögel in Städten erzählen (Berlin Verlag)
A bird's-eye view of the city: Rose-ringed parakeets in the Rhineland, Egyptian geese in Frankfurt, nightingales in Berlin: the bird world in cities is changing. People are destroying habitats and creating new ones elsewhere. As if under a burning glass, in cities it is possible to observe what it means that humans shape the habitat for other organisms. Caroline Ring travels the country in search of its birds and tells their most significant stories: from the disappearance of the sparrows to the return of the swifts. The biologist shows how humans and animals live together - and why we need each other.
Caroline Ring, born in 1985, studied biology with a focus on evolutionary biology in Hamburg and Berlin. After working at the Berlin Museum of Natural History, the Financial Times Deutschland and the knowledge department of Die Welt, she now works as a freelance journalist and author in Berlin. In 2019, she was nominated for the Holtzbrinck Prize for Science Journalism. In 2020, Berlin Verlag published her Botschafter des Lebens. Was Bäume in Städten erzählen.
