Conservation and ecology of a new blind fish Glossogobius ankaranensis from the Ankárana Caves, Madagascar

  • Jane M. Wilson (a1)

Abstract

In 1981 Fauna & Flora International's 100% Fund assisted an expedition to study the biology of the Ankárana Caves in Madagascar. A follow-up expedition collected examples of a fish that was subsequently found to be a new species. Its restricted distribution as well as existing and potential threats to its habitat mean that it must be considered as endangered.
