Stygofauna are any fauna that live in groundwater systems or aquifers, such as caves, fissures and auna and troglofauna are the two types of subterranean fauna (based on life-history). Both are associated with subterranean environments – stygofauna are associated with water and troglofauna with caves and spaces above the water table. STYGOFAUNA MUNDI Stygofauna Mundi is the result of the co-operation of an international team of 65 specialists. The aim of the book is to give in a concise manner the maximum amount of sound information on the world fauna of subterranean waters, on its geographical distribution and on its habitats. Such a synthesis became necessary because of. Stygofauna Mundi is organized in three phases [(1) finding sources; (2) extracting data; (3) cleaning sub-datasets per country/area]. Here is a summy .   Stygofauna also keep ground water flowing by maintaining the spaces between soil particles. Threats to stygofauna Using a video camera to research stygofauna down a bore hole. Photo - Parks and Wildlife. Stygofauna have evolved and specialised over time to live in particular underground water habitats.

Stygofauna mundi, a faunistic, distributional, and ecological synthesis of the world fauna inhabiting subterranean waters (including the marine interstitial). E. J. Brill/Dr. W. Backhuys, Leiden. Pp. This impressive book edited by the senior "stygologist" Lazare Botosaneanu is an abundant source for new and sometimes exotically intriguing information for. Troglofauna. Troglofauna, like stygofauna, are subterranean animals but they are air-breathing and are found from a metre of two below the surface down to the water table. Most troglofauna are invertebrates, with arachnid groups and primitive insects being well represented in troglofauna communities. Troglofauna are also eyeless and poorly. Stygofauna are aquatic animals that live in groundwater.. Globally, stygofauna are found in many different types of groundwater environments including fresh and saline aquifers, caves in limestone, and within the smaller pore spaces, voids, cracks and fissures in virtually any other type of rock or sediment, including springs and sediments in the beds of streams and rivers.

Species Diversity and Distribution of Inland Fishes in China. January ; A new insight into the Stygofauna Mundi: assembling a global dataset for aquatic fauna in subterranean environments. This issue was published in Journal of the North American Benthological Society (), which is continued by Freshwater Science (present). The potential of subterranean environments as models to address major evolutionary and ecological questions has been highlighted in the literature. They represent partially isolated, discrete units offering several replicates of the same evolutionary processes. Species occurrence data of these environments is abundant, although sparse in the literature or gathered in Author: Alejandro Martinez, Nikoleta Anicic, Salvatore Calvaruso, Nuria Sanchez, Laura Puppieni, Tommaso Sfo.
