About this book

Language: German with bilingual summaries in English and German

The first article in this volume presents the current list of the Austrian ant fauna. In addition to the distribution of species across the individual federal states, additional ecological assessments are cited. At present 31 genera with 133 wild species and additionally ten known only from buildings are known from Austria. Evidence of seven other species is questionable. As all nomenclatural changes of recent years have been taken into account, there is a reference book, on which further research of the domestic ant fauna can be built.

The second article deals with the oribatid fauna (moss mites of beetle mites) of Austria, whose representatives are distributed among 198 genera and 79 families. Taking into account species potentially to be recovered that are currently not clearly delineated, as well as newly described species, there are currently 623 valid taxa (606 species and 17 subspecies or forms). Of these, 26 species reports are still unpublished; they represent the first evidence for Austria. The research status of the oribatid mite fauna shows strong regional differences – future investigations are expected to therefore increase the number of species significantly.

Summary in German:
Im ersten Beitrag dieses Bandes wird die aktuelle Liste der österreichischen Ameisenfauna vorgestellt. Neben der Verteilung der Arten über die einzelnen Bundesländer werden zusätzlich auch ökologische Einschätzungen angeführt. Derzeit sind aus Österreich 31 Gattungen mit 133 freilebenden Arten und zusätzlich zehn nur aus Gebäuden bekannten Ameisenarten gesichert nachgewiesen. Nachweise von sieben weiteren Arten sind fraglich. Da alle nomenklatorischen Änderungen der letzten Jahre berücksichtigt wurden, liegt ein Nachschlagewerk vor, auf dem die weitere Erforschung der heimischen Ameisenfauna aufbauen kann.

Der zweite Beitrag beschäftigt sich mit der Oribatiden-Fauna (Horn- oder Moosmilben) Österreichs, deren Vertreter sich auf 198 Gattungen und 79 Familien verteilen. Unter Berücksichtigung potentiell einzuziehender, zurzeit nicht klar abgrenzbarer sowie neu zu beschreibender Arten verbleiben aktuell 623 valide Taxa (606 Arten und 17 Unterarten bzw. formae). Davon sind 26 Artmeldungen noch unpubliziert; sie stellen Erstnachweise für Österreich dar. Der Erforschungsstand der Hornmilbenfauna weist starke regionale Unterschiede auf – zukünftige Untersuchungen werden daher die Artenzahl noch deutlich ansteigen lassen.
