Millipede (Diplopoda) distributions: a review
A highly mosaic distribution of the diversity in Diplopoda over the globe is rooted in the group’s general structure, biology, ecology and phylogeny, which has long made the Diplipoda a group most attractive for biogeographical reconstructions.
Myriapods (Myriapoda). Chapter 7.2
The introduction of some species into Europe could have begun already in historical times with an increase in trade between ancient Greeks and Romans with cities in the Near East and North Africa, and with the trade between Europe and some tropical countries, especially after the discoveries of the Americas and Australia.
0158. Atlas of Myriapod Biogeography. I. Indigenous Ordinal and Supra-Ordinal Distributions in the Diplopoda: Perspectives on Taxon Origins and Ages, and a Hypothesis on the Origin and Early
The biogeographic significance of Diplopoda is substantiated by 50 maps documenting indigenous occurrences of the 16 orders, the three Spirostreptida s. l. suborders Cambalidea, Epinannolenidea,
Trends in the ecological strategies and evolution of millipedes (Diplopoda)
The ecological strategies of millipedes are rooted both in the group's phylogeny and in the Earth's history, with the habitats in Europe with richest millipede faunas seem to be temperate forests in the Atlantic zone and central mountain chains, where the Order Chordeumatida is strongly represented.
