About this book

Language: English, with one French contribution with an English summary

The present volume contains papers presented at the Tenth International Congress of Myriapodology which was held in Copenhagen 29 July - 2 August, 1996. The congress in Copenhagen was attended by 66 myriapodologists (not counting associates) representing 28 countries in all major zoogeographical regions. The scope of the presentations was correspondingly wide. Those congress papers and posters which are published here have all been through a standard refereeing procedure which in some cases has resulted in significant changes from the original congress contribution. Taken together, the papers advertise that myriapodology, although an avocation of the selected few, is very much a living branch of zoology.
