(Blog Animals move wilde)

(Blog Me gustan los libros)

Un repaso exhaustivo por las especies animales desconocidas que habitan en los lugares más recónditos e inexplorados del planeta Tierra.

Es imposible que los angeles moderna zoología cubra toda los angeles tierra y descubra todas las especies, aún en nuestros días existen lugares inexplorados de los angeles Tierra y, en ellos, habitan las especies animales más sorprendentes: los angeles criptozoología rastrea esos animales de los que se tiene noticia. El calamar gigante, el okapi o el dragón de comodo, antes de descubrirse y de que l. a. biología los estudiase eran leyendas, mitos, críptidos, animales no reconocidos por los angeles zoología. Criptozoología: el enigma de las criaturas insólitas realiza un repaso por aquellas criaturas que se habían avistado pero que no se conocían; por aquellas especies que, creyéndose extinguidas, seguían poblando nuestro planeta; valora las posibilidades biológicas de que existan animales que aún hoy nos parecen irreales; y, por último, desenmascara los fraudes que a lo largo de los angeles historia se han dado con respecto a los animales imposibles.

Daniel Rojas está más interesado en l. a. base científica de los animales que en aceptar cualquier posible ejemplar del que se haya tenido noticia y esto se ve en casos como el del monstruo del lago Ness, en donde demuestra las conexiones submarinas del lago con el mar en lugar de ahondar en toda los angeles mitología que envuelve al monstruo. Prefiere hacer un análisis exhaustivo de numerosas especies enriqueciendo cada análisis con imágenes y con mitos y anécdotas que centrarse en las manidas historias del yeti y del bigfoot. Además defiende los angeles tesis de que los angeles cantidad de lugares terrestre y submarinos que aún siguen sin explorar sumado al cambio climático que se está dando en el planeta todavía nos depararán innumerables sorpresas zoológicas.

Razones para leer l. a. obra:

• Existen pocos libros que traten el tema de los animales no reconocidos por l. a. ciencia y lo haga de un modo que sea accesible a todo el mundo.
• los angeles obra está enfocada desde los angeles historia, los angeles paleontología, l. a. zoología y los angeles criptozoología y muestra los angeles posibilidad de que se den las especies desde estos cuatro enfoques.
• El autor enriquece el texto con anécdotas y mitos sobre las especies tratadas además de con teorías propias sobre l. a. evolución y el desarrollo de las especies.
• l. a. información que el autor aporta en los angeles obra viene acompañada de importantes documentos gráficos por lo que el lector se sorprenderá al ver animales que hasta ahora desconocía.

Una obra que comprende de un modo tremendamente eficiente los angeles historia de los estudios que comenzara en los angeles década de los 50 del S. XX Bern Heuvelmans y que han contado con el apoyo de científicos tan ilustres como Carl Sagan o l. a. primatóloga Jane Goodall.
