The INDOBIOSYS project (financed by the BMBF through the Naturkundemuseum Berlin) deals with the integrative inventory of different animal groups at the Halimun-Salak Nationalpark on Java, Indonesia. A special focus lies on a fast inventory combining molecular and morphological data. The aim of the project is an inventory of the biodiversity of the park for the Indonesian state. Successively, pharmaceutical research for relevant substances in the animal taxa can then be conducted.
The INDOBIOSYS Myriapoda part of the project will inventorize the millipedes. The millipedes are of special interest for the whole project (1) because of the small are of distribution of the millipede species, who are adapted to a life inside the soil matrix; and (2) because Myriapoda are renown for their poison glands (in centipedes) or chemically complex defence fluids
