Distribution patterns of lithobiomorpha on the territory of the USSR
Lithobiomorpha are typical dwellers of the forest litter and soil, they play an essential role in the regulation of the densities of soil invertebrates. Studying the ecology of this important group was restrained due to lack of knowledge of the species somposition. The first stage of studying of the Lithobiomorpha fauna in the USSR can now be summed up with the ecological and morphological characteristics of the centipedes described in detail for a number of zones and regions of the country.
