During our research on the effect of climate change on biodiversity Elli Groner and fellow researchers studied frequency and magnitude of flood events on several LTER sites. In the Migda LTER site, where Dr Shayli Dor Haim is running an initial ecosystem study, Tamir Rosenberg, the entomology lab manager at DSASC found this amazing creature. This is a rare microwhip scorpion (Palpigradi) The “whip” or “tail” is an extension of the abdomen (just like the “tail”of the scorpion). This a very exiting finding as these creatures usually live in moist conditions like tropics or caves and this was found in a completely new ecosystem that was created as part of an initial ecosystem study. The research is funded by the Ministry of Science and Technology. We are awaiting for further details from the curator of the arachnida museum at HUJI, Dr Efrat Gavish.
