Underground gourmet: Selected terrestrial cave invertebrates and their meal preferences

10 agosto 2015

Doubting whether cave invertebrates feed on just anything they can find in the harsh food-wise environment underground, researchers conducted a research in Slovakian and Romania caves. They studied a number of microwhip scorpions, oribatid mites, millipedes, springtails and crustaceans and their gut content. As a result it was concluded that there is an evident nutritional specialization among the selected groups.
