About this book

Language: English

This series focuses on the entomological biodiversity, biogeography and conservation of one of the richest and scientifically most interesting areas of the earth – the islands of Wallacea and New Guinea. The intention is for the books to appear in regular succession. This publication series offers a new discussion platform for biologists of various disciplines from around the world, with a focus on the Indo-Australian transitional zone. This fourth volume contains 28 scientific papers (see table of contents for more details).

With four chapters on molluscs, combined with the malacological contributions in the previous volumes, the series already counts among the major contributions to the knowledge of the terrestrial snails of the Wallacean Region. Most chapters of the present new volume unsurprisingly deal with arthropods, which represent the vast majority and the most poorly known animals. Newly discovered invertebrates described here include, among other little natural treasures, a predatory aquatic bug from the Cyclops Mountains, a non-spiky species in an otherwise spiky millipede genus from Wau, and a new snail from Waigeo Island, a giant of its kind. Several chapters are dedicated to vertebrates, including one on the conservation of a recently described tarsier, and the diagnoses of a new frog and of a new skink species. In total three dozens of new taxa are here brought to light and enrich the already highly diverse, still vastly understudied, Wallacean biodiversity.
