About this book

Language: Croatian

The Cave Type Localities Atlas of Croatian Fauna, Volume 2 was published in 2013 as a continuation of the effort to catalogue cave type localities. These speleological objects are where new cave fauna was first discovered and scientifically described as new species for science. Volume 2 describes in detail 88 caves with their 140 specific animal species. As in Volume 1, each object is presented with a photograph of the cave entrance and a panorama of the area around it. Cave animals are shown on photographs or drawings and an interesting text informing about its importance, supported by the literature used. The novelty compared to Volume 1 of the Atlas is the complete list of 271 cave type localities of Croatian Fauna with 427 currently described animal species. Because of the high biodiversity of cave fauna in the Croatian karst and constant discovery of new species, we expect this number to increase in the years to come.

The aim of this richly illustrated book is to present the work of cavers and cave-biologists, but also to introduce the general public to the unique values of the Croatian underworld.
