Major questions in the phylogeny and biogeography of Cholevidae (Coleoptera)
Ecology and sampling techniques of an understudied subterranean habitat: the Milieu Souterrain Superficiel (MSS)
The advances in the study of the physical and ecological factors affecting this habitat—i.e., microclimate, energy flows, animal communities, and trophic interactions are synthesized and described and reviewed the available sampling methods used to investigate MSS fauna.
Conservation value of artificial subterranean systems: A case study in an abandoned mine in Italy
An ecological survey of the invertebrate community at the epigean/hypogean interface
We studied the ecological continuum between caves and the associated network of fissures – Milieu Souterrain Superficiel (MSS) – in an hypogean site in the Graian Alps, Italy. Over one year, we…
Seasonal dynamics and micro-climatic preference of two Alpine endemic hypogean beetles
The climatic conditions occurring underground have a profound influence on hypogean fauna (Culver & Pipan, 2010). As far as hypogean beetles are concerned, it is well known that they generally dwell…
A new cryptic ground beetle species from the Alps characterised via geometric morphometrics
A comparative analysis using geometric morphometrics applying the semilandmarks approach confirmed that the three groups of Nebria (Nebriola) casalei sp.
