Chapter
Part of the Süßwasserfauna von Mitteleuropa book series (424)

Zusammenfassung

In Europe (excluding Caucasus and Macaronesian Islands) SCHATZ (2005) calculates in total about 2100 species of described oribatid mite species, worldwide about 10.000 species. In Germany about 520 species are determined and evaluated (without several synonyms; after WEIGMANN 2006). The considered geographical region of this chapter is Central Europe, i. e. Germany and the surrounding countries; other Eastern European countries are excluded, as well as the mediterranean region, if not mentioned especially.
