About this book

Language: English

This is a complete synopsis of the millipede fauna of Asian Russia, the vast Palaearctic area extending from the Ural Mountains in the west to the Pacific coast and adjacent islands in the east. The fauna, which has no fewer than 103 species, 39 genera, 17 families, and five orders, is reviewed and summarised. A historical account, a review of the morphology and ecology of the millipedes in the region, and zoogeographical notes are provided. Illustrated descriptions and diagnoses of, as well as keys to, all main millipede taxa recorded in the Asian part of Russia are included. In addition, all available data on the taxonomy and distribution of the region's Diplopoda are summarised.

Dr E. V. Mikhaljova works at the Institute of Biology and Soil Science, Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Viadivostok, Russia. The book reflects her lifetime experience with the systematics, biology, ecology and distribution of Asian Diplopoda. Despite certain inavoidable lacunae, this work allows the millipede faunas of Siberia and the Russian Far East to be ranked among the best known in the world, let alone Asia.
