About this book

Language: Spanish

This volume in the series Fauna Ibérica is dedicated to the twelve families of the order Pantopoda (Acheliidae, Aschorhynchidae, Tanystylidae, Nymphonidae, Callipallenidae, Pallenopseidae, Phoxichilidiidae, Endeididae, Colossendeidae, Austrodecidae, Rhynchothoracidae, and Pycnogonidae) that make up the picnogonid fauna of the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic islands. The volume begins with a comprehensive and updated overview of the general characteristics of the group. Next, the authors have made an effort to condense the most relevant information for each species and the biological details that relate specifically to the Ibero-Balearic region: taxonomic position, biogeographical distribution globally and at Iberian level, reproductive biology and food if known, ecology, etc. All information is documented by providing an extensive bibliography. The descriptions, illustrations, and dichotomous keys help correct identification. For this purpose the volume also includes a booklet of color photographs devoted mostly to adults of the main Ibero-Balearic species. The final part of the text that contains a wide and thorough updating of nomenclature of taxa represented in the study area was conducted by Miguel Angel Alonso-Zaragoza; compilation was particularly complex given the profusion of names throughout history that have been applied to some of the taxa treated.

Summary in Spanish:
Esta monografía de la serie de Fauna Ibérica está dedicada a las doce familias del orden Pantopoda (Acheliidae, Aschorhynchidae, Tanystylidae, Nymphonidae, Callipallenidae, Pallenopseidae, Phoxichilidiidae, Endeididae, Colossendeidae, Austrodecidae, Rhynchothoracidae y Pycnogonidae) que componen la picnogonifauna de la península ibérica e islas Baleares. El volumen empieza con una amplia y actualizada panorámica de los caracteres generales del grupo. Seguidamente, los autores han hecho un esfuerzo para condensar lo más relevante de la información de cada especie, así como de los detalles biológicos que se refieren específicamente a la región íbero-balear: posición taxonómica, distribución biogeográfica a nivel mundial e ibérico, biología reproductora y alimentación si se conoce, ecología, etc. Toda la información se documenta proporcionando una extensa bibliografía. Las descripciones, claves dicotómicas e ilustraciones ayudarán a una correcta identificación. Con este propósito el volumen incluye, además un cuadernillo de fotografías en color dedicadas mayormente a los adultos de las principales especies íbero baleares. La parte final del texto, que recoge una amplia y minuciosa actualización nomenclatural de los taxones representados en la zona estudiada, ha sido llevada a cabo por Miguel Ángel Alonso-Zaragoza; su compilación ha sido especialmente compleja dada la profusión de nombres que a lo largo de la historia se ha aplicado a algunos de los táxones tratados.
