In this issue, Vicky Wilkins brings us news about the restoration and protection of the cloud forests of St. Helena (UK) and its impact on the island invertebrate endemics. In addition, Vicky shares news about the re-exploration of the endemic subterranean fauna at Ascension Island (UK), its methods and challenges.

 

In this number, we also dedicate special attention to the work presented by group members at the World Congress of Malacology, which took place in Munich in August. 

 

Martina Panisi talked about the discovery and preservation of the endemic-rich malacofauna of the Gulf of Guinea oceanic islands (central Africa). Next, Marco Neiber spoke about the origin, radiation and diversification of Hemicycla land snails in the Canary Islands, while Klaus Groh talked about the Pomatiidae of the Central Canary Islands. 

Finally, Dinarte Teixeira spoke about the conservation of the land snails in the Atlantic islands.
