Checklist of the Central European riparian ground beetles (Carabidae)

With this initiative BioFresh has established a taxalist of riparian ground beetles (Carabidae) of riparian areas along Central European rivers (Austria, Switzerland, Germany and areas in close vicinity). The data have been extracted from literature and from unpublished data already compiled by Wolfgang Paill and Michael-Andreas Fritze, two of the leading European carabidologists. The newly compiled data have been supplemented by already available data from own investigations.

For all the riparian areas the database contains also environmental data recorded centrally from GIS sources: river, coordinates, altitude, physico-chemical variables, land-use in the surroundings, available habitats. Altogether, taxa lists from 361 sites, mainly from Austria, Italy and Germany, have been compiled, comprising data on 587 ground beetle species.
