  Order Struthioniformes
  Family Dinornithidae
  Genus Dinornis
Dinornis (the "giant moa") is an extinct genus of ratite birds that lived in New Zealand until about the year 1500. It is believed to have wiped out as a result of hunting by humans.

Dinornis was up to 12 feet (3.6 meters) tall, and hair-like red-brown feathers. It had powerful feet, and a long neck, and was a herbivore (plant-eater).

Product Description:
Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Geowissenschaften / Geographie - Paläontologie, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Wahre Riesen stehen im Mittelpunkt des Taschenbuches „Dinornis - Der größte Vogel aller Zeiten". Dabei handelt es sich um bis zu 3,60 Meter hohe und fast 280 Kilogramm schwere Weibchen des Riesen-Moa Dinornis („Schreckensvogel"), der einst auf Neuseeland existierte. Jene gefiederten Giganten waren ungefähr anderthalb mal so groß und fast drei Mal so schwer wie die merklich kleineren Männchen. Wie bei Straußen in der Gegenwart betreuten die Männchen der Riesen-Moa den Nachwuchs vom Brüten bis zum Aufziehen. Im Gegensatz dazu verteidigten die Weibchen der Riesen-Moa das Revier. Der „Schreckensvogel" wurde bereits 1843 durch den Londoner Zoologen und Paläontologen Richard Owen (1804-1892) erstmals beschrieben, der im April 1842 den Begriff Dinosauria („Schreckensechsen") für die Dinosaurier eingeführt hatte. In der Nacheiszeit haben auf Neuseeland neun zu den Moa gehörende Arten gelebt. Bevor gegen Ende des 13. Jahrhunderts erstmals Menschen in Neuseeland einwanderten, sollen dort Hunderttausende oder über eine Million Moa heimisch gewesen sein. Zu starke Jagd auf diese Laufvögel führte bereits um 1450 zu deren Aussterben. Verfasser des Taschenbuches „Dinornis - Der größte Vogel aller Zeiten" ist der Wiesbadener Wissenschaftsautor Ernst Probst, der zahlreiche Werke über urzeitliche Tiere geschrieben hat.

Vogelriesen in der Urzeit: Rekorde gefiederter Giganten (German Edition)
 
Product Description:
Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Geowissenschaften / Geographie - Paläontologie, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Gefiederte Giganten stehen im Mittelpunkt des Taschenbuches „Vogelriesen in der Urzeit“. Weibliche Tiere der Gattung Dinornis („Schreckensvogel“) auf Neuseeland gelten mit einer Höhe bis zu 3,60 Metern als größte Vögel aller Zeiten. Der Donnervogel Dromornis in Australien erreichte ein Lebendgewicht von maximal 570 Kilogramm und war deswegen der schwerste Vogel der Erdgeschichte. Mit einer Flügelspannweite bis zu 8 Metern gebührt dem Greifvogel Argentavis aus Argentinien die Ehre, der größte fliegende Vogel gewesen zu sein. Nicht ganz so imposant wirkte der größte Meeresvogel Pelagornis in Nordamerika mit einer Flügelspannweite von 6,40 Metern. Die größten Eier legte der weibliche Elefantenvogel Aepyornis auf Madagaskar: Sie waren bis zu 35 Zentimeter lang und ihr Inhalt entsprach demjenigen von 200 heutigen Hühnereiern. Hesperornis, der „Vogel des Westens“ in Nordamerika, trug noch Zähne. Angst und Schrecken verbreitete der Terrorvogel Phorusrhacos in Südamerika. Der lange Zeit als Räuber verkannte Laufvogel Gastornis existierte auch in Deutschland. Verfasser des Taschenbuches „Vogelriesen in der Urzeit“ ist der Wiesbadener Wissenschaftsautor Ernst Probst, der zahlreiche Werke über urzeitliche Tiere geschrieben hat.
