About this book

The monograph, "Fauna of Poland - characteristics and checklist of species", aims to be a source of comprehensive information on Polish faunal biodiversity, its value, and the current state of knowledge for individual taxa. The book lists all recent animal species reported from Poland (but generally excludes the fauna of the Baltic Sea), and describes all higher-order taxa, from phylum to family level. Summaries of knowledge of individual taxa in Poland are also provided and compared to what is known of their occurrence elsewhere.

The lists of species occurring in Poland are based on literature data and unpublished research by the respective authors, as well as on museum collections, many of which were subjected to a critical review for the purposes of this volume. The lists have been enriched with comprehensive biological and faunistic information, such as descriptions of the areas and habitats where a species occurs, abundance, habitat preferences, feeding habits, position in the trophic chain, as well as taxonomy and conservation status.

The Monograph will be published in four volumes (Vol. I, II & III - invertebrates, Vol. IV - vertebrates), each dealing with taxonomic groups of different ranks and sizes. It is addressed not only to zoologists of various specialties but also to naturalists in a broad sense of this word. The book should prove to be of use to nature conservationists, those working for national parks and landscape parks, quarantine services, and relevant authorities at all levels of state and local government. It should also prove valuable for teachers of biology at centres for biological education, secondary schools and universities.
