oa Madoqua - The digestive enzymes of some psammophilous tenebrionid beetles from South West Africa
This investigation evaluates the role of terrestrial invertebrales in the process of degradation and secondary humification of litter. This process is known particularly in many temperate, humid and moderately humid environments but little is known about desert species. We have assessed the action of the digestive enzymes of some Namib Desert tenebrionid beetles feeding on dead vegetation.
