Regional Arachnogeography

  • Petar Beron
Chapter
Part of the Monographiae Biologicae book series (MOBI, volume 94)

Abstract

The arachnofauna of various parts of the Earth is analyzed and the particularities, endemics, relicts, and the presumed ways of formation of the fauna are outlined. Also the northern limits of the groups in the Holarctic are indicated, and the connections in the geological time are analyzed.
