The obscure history of the Lake Skadar and its biota: a perspective for future research
Michał Grabowski , Aleksandra Jabłońska , Anna Wysocka , Vladimir Pešić
AbstractThe Lake Skadar and its basin, representing the classic karst of the Dinarides with a very complex hydrogeology, are unique areas with high landscape heterogeneity and rich species diversity, including numerous endemic species from various taxonomic groups. However, the geological history of the Lake Skadar basin remains poorly understood, with several hypotheses on its origins. Also, the evolutionary history of local biodiversity and its link with the palaeogeography of the area are largely unknown. However, recent accumulation of studies upon some model taxa, such as crustaceans, molluscs or fish, provides space for at least some generalisation.
