By A. Vandel, G. A. Kerkut

Biospeleology: The Biology of Cavernicolous Animals discusses the basic ideas in knowing the organic make up of cave-dwelling animals. The name goals to narrate the subterranean global as a habitat for organisms.
The first a part of the textual content tackles uncomplicated issues, corresponding to the idea that of the subterranean international and cavernicoles, in addition to the heritage and examine issues in biospeleology. subsequent, the choice enumerates the subterranean wildlife, besides the geographical distribution and ecology of cavernicoles. the following components element the body structure and behaviour of cavernicoles, whereas the final half tackles the evolution of cavarnicoles.
The ebook should be of significant curiosity to zoologists, biologists, and ecologists who desire to achieve a greater knowing of the organic houses of subterranean organisms.

N o specimens of the other introduced species were observed. It seems that selective discrimination had become established in this heterogeneous population. Certain species had become adapted whilst others were rapidly eliminated. C. B R E E D I N G O F CAVERNICOLES Informative as transplantations may be, they cannot replace breeding methods. The breeding of cavernicoles is essential to acquire data on their physiological requirements, including food, and u p o n their behaviour, breeding habits, development and longevity.

FRANCE The Laboratoire des Catacombes At the time when E . A . M a r t e l was carrying out his spectacular speleological explorations, A r m a n d Viré concerned himself with the subterranean fauna. When he came to Paris to continue his studies at the M u s é u m National d'Histoire Naturelle, he thought of using the Catacombes which extend under the Jardin des Plantes as a laboratory. He submitted his plan to Alphonse Milne-Edwards, director of the Museum, who approved it and supplied the necessary means for it to be carried out.
