About this book

Language: Contributions in either German or English, with trilingual introduction and article abstracts in English, German, and French

From 2007 to 2011, animals were collected from 82 natural caves and artificial caverns in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The Ösling is the Northern part of Luxembourg and mainly consists of Devonian schist. Specimens were collected there from 5 railway tunnels, 6 schist mines, 5 copper mines and 4 other subground excavations. The Gutland covers the Southern 2/3 of Luxembourg. Collections were made in 1 natural cave in limestone, and 7 natural caves in calcareous sandstone, 2 gypsum mines, 6 sandstone mines, 3 railway tunnels 1 other object as well as 6 casemattes (subterranean defensive fortifications) of Luxembourg City. Only a small part of the Mosel valley is belongs to Luxemburg. In this valley, collections could be done in 2 natural limestone caves and 3 dolomite mines. One focus was the Minette region, located in the very south of Luxembourg with 14 processed iron mines and 2 railway tunnels.

Collections were normally done four times a year by using Barber traps as well as collections by hand using paint brushs. Sieving of water was an exception.

More than 90 000 specimens were collected, comprising 512 species. The greater part of them is published in this book. 201 species were found the first time in Luxembourg; 3 are new to sciences. 73 species are subtroglophile, 94 eutroglophile, and 13 eutroglobiont.

Thirty-six articles deal with animal groups, one with description of new species.
