The Carabidae shape one of many greatest and most sensible studied households of bugs, happening in approximately each terrestrial habitat. The contributions integrated during this publication conceal a large spectrum of modern examine into this beetle relatives, with an emphasis on numerous features of ecology and evolution. They deal either with person carabid species, for instance in reviews on inhabitants and reproductive biology or existence historical past normally, and with floor beetle groups, as exemplified in papers treating assemblages in normal habitats, on agricultural land and in forests. Disciplines diversity from biogeography and faunistics, over morphology, taxonomy and phylogenetics, ecophysiology and sensible ecology, to inhabitants, group, conservation and panorama ecology.
This quantity is the results of the eighth eu Carabidologists' assembly, 2d overseas Symposium of Carabidology, September 1-4, 1992, Belgium.

4% of endemic species. Endemism at the species level is clearly associated with mountain regions. For instance, many species, endemic to Western and Central Europe, are confined to the southern slopes of the Alps. Endemic species exclusively connected with lowlands only occur on the East-European Plain (see below). ). The subgenus Eurycarabus Gehin is subendemic for the Apenninian peninsula. Using the Czekanowski-S0rensen index, four geographical clusters were found at the 40% similarity level.

This concept allows the study of some traditional floristic/faunistic phenomena, such as changes in species diversity and species composition throughout large regions at a local scale.
