Animal Internet: Nature and the Digital Revolution by Alexander Pschera and Elisabeth Lauffer English | 2016 | ISBN: 1939931339 | 233 Pages | PDF | 48.5 MB A bold and surprising exploration of how a new digital revolution will transform human ties with the natural world.
A bestial Brave New World is on the horizon: Some fifty thousand creatures around the globe-including whales, leopards, flamingoes, bats, and snails-are being equipped with digital tracking devices. The data gathered and studied by major scientific institutes about their behavior will warn us about tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, but also radically transform our relationship to the natural world. With a broad cultural and historical perspective, this book examines human ties with animals, from domestic pets to the soaring popularity of bird watching and kitten images on the Web. Will millennia of exploration soon be reduced to experiencing wilderness via smartphone? Contrary to pessimistic fears, author Alexander Pschera sees the Internet as creating a historic opportunity for a new dialogue between man and nature.
Foreword by Martin Wikelski, Director, Max Planck Institute for Ornithology. The book includes eight color photos and an index.
