Record #12881:

The dispersal of insects to Spitsbergen / Charles S. Elton.

Title: The dispersal of insects to Spitsbergen / Charles S. Elton.
Author(s): Elton, Charles S.
Date: 1925.
Abstract: Observations made during 1921, 1923, 1924 Oxford University expeditions. Scarcity of insect fauna appears due to high Arctic character and geographical location of Spitsbergen. Wind, flight, birds, and ships considered mainly responsible for dispersal of present fauna, with "voluntary migration" seeming to play an important part in the case of insects like flies.

Offprint: Transactions of the Entomological Society of London. Vol. 1, 2 :289-299.
