Factors Determining the Distribution of Arachnida

  • Petar Beron
Part of the Monographiae Biologicae book series (MOBI, volume 94)


As factors of distribution of Arachnida are outlined paleogeography and paleodistribution, age of groups, barriers, bridges, ability to overcome them, phoresy, dispersal, climate, orography and many other fundamental concepts.
