The terrestrial and freshwater invertebrate biodiversity of the archipelagoes of the Barents Sea; Svalbard, Franz Josef Land and Novaya Zemlya
Arctic terrestrial ecosystems are generally considered to be species poor, fragile and often isolated. Nonetheless, their intricate complexity, especially that of the invertebrate component, is
The diversity of phoretic Mesostigmata on Ips typographus (Coleoptera: Scolytinae) caught in the Karkonosze forest
This study determined the scale of the phoresy of mesostigmatid mite by setting pheromone traps in the Karkonosze National Park (Poland) and found that the most numerous mites were Dendrolaelaps quadrisetus and Trichouropoda polytricha.
A catalogue of the Iranian Mesostigmata (Acari): additions and updates of the previous catalogue
By considering Phytoseiidae family, the list of mesostigmatic mites reported from different parts of Iran was increased into 47 families, 172 genera and 620 species, and a total of 371 species out of 127 genera belonging to 39 families were listed.
Mite communities (Acari, Mesostigmata) associated with Ips typographus (Coleoptera, Scolytidae) in managed and natural Norway spruce stands in Central Europe
The objective of this study was to compare mesostigmatid mite communities associated with the Norway spruce pest Ips typographus in managed and natural forest stands separated by spruce-free belt, and observed differences in the total abundance of mites as well as the total number of recorded mite species.
Community structure and dispersal of mites (Acari, Mesostigmata) in nests of the white stork (Ciconia ciconia)
The fauna of Mesostigmata in nests of the white stork Ciconia ciconia was studied in the vicinity of Poznań (Poland). A total of 37 mite species was recovered from 11 of the 12 nests examined. The
Differences in speciation progress in feather mites (Analgoidea) inhabiting the same host: the case of Zachvatkinia and Alloptes living on arctic and long-tailed skuas
The star-like structures in the haplotype network as well as high haplotype diversity and low nucleotide diversity observed in Z. isolata are concordant with the known dispersal strategy of feather mites: vertical colonization of new host individuals followed by rapid growth of founder populations.
Mesostigmatid mites in four classes of wood decay
The mesostigmatid mite community in four classes of wood decay in mixed forest stands in the Wielkopolska region, Cental-West Poland showed that relatively decayed wood (class IV) had a greater rate of species accumulation than undecayed wood from the class I decomposition.
The invertebrate fauna of anthropogenic soils in the High-Arctic settlement of Barentsburg, Svalbard
Despite the enriched organic soils and highly ameliorated winter temperature conditions, the soil invertebrate fauna biodiversity does not appear to be enhanced beyond the presence of certain probably introduced species.
Invertebrate communities inhabiting nests of migrating passerine, wild fowl and sea birds breeding in the High Arctic, Svalbard
With the exception of the ectoparasites, little indicates that invertebrates preferentially exploit nests in Svalbard, as most species were free living and normally common in soils.
