Abstract

Special attention is payed to the comparison between the arachnofaunas of close areas: Mediterranean and Central European; Mexico and the USA; Central America and the Caribbean Islands; South Africa, Madagascar, Seychelles, and Mascarene; and special areas like Patagonia and New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, and Lord Howe Island.

Keywords
