Dr. Horst Wilkens is a Professor at the University of Hamburg. His research focuses on the evolution of cave dwelling animals, and speciation processes. His work includes studies of two of Lanzarote’s ecosystems, the “Jameos del Agua”, and the “Túnel de la Atlántida”, as well as of the biology of the here occurring animal species. The knowledge of the fauna and flora of Lanzarote acquired in connection with these studies was the basis for this nature guide.

The blind and white crabs were scientifically studied by Professor Dr. Horst Wilkens (University of Hamburg, Germany) since many years. In this beautifully illustrated guide he explains the way how these deep see animals colonised the Jameos del Agua and could survive here. The author also describes the unique fauna and flora of Lanzarote which has adapted to the bizarre volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote. Many of the animals and plants exclusively exist on this island. The guide also gives proposals for trips where they can be observed. - Newsletter
