Download E-books Criptozoología: el enigma de las criaturas insólitas PDF

By Daniel Rojas

“Daniel Rojas en este libro intenta desvelar qué se esconde detrás de esos animales misteriosos que l. a. ciencia se niega a aceptar presentando datos precisos, hallazgos paleontológicos sorprendentes incluso descubrimientos concretos.”
(Blog Animals cross wilde)

“Recurriendo a informes y relatos bien documentados, a referencias históricas y literarias de épocas diferentes y a los últimos descubrimientos paleontológicos y zoológicos, el autor nos hace viajar por un mundo insólito que comienza por los misterios del mar y sus profundidades.”
(Blog Me gustan los libros)

“Se lee con una rapidez sorprendente, quizás porque ahonda poco en determinadas criaturas a want de un listado enorme y sugerente cuyas anécdotas, si las hay, se narran con ligereza y se leen con interés.”
(Web Anika entre libros)

“Daniel Rojas, por su parte, hace especial hincapié en Ias nuevas posibilidades de investigación que aporta el cambio climático, ya que bajo el deshielo pueden aparecer descubrimientos sorprendentes.”
(Revista Qué Leer)

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 l. a. 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 l. a. 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 l. a. historia se han dado con respecto a los animales imposibles.

Daniel Rojas está más interesado en los angeles 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 los angeles obra:

• Existen pocos libros que traten el tema de los animales no reconocidos por los angeles ciencia y lo haga de un modo que sea accesible a todo el mundo.
• l. a. obra está enfocada desde los angeles historia, los angeles paleontología, l. a. zoología y l. a. criptozoología y muestra l. a. 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 los angeles 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 l. a. década de los 50 del S. XX Bern Heuvelmans y que han contado con el apoyo de científicos tan ilustres como Carl Sagan o los angeles primatóloga Jane Goodall.
