At the end of April 2023, students participated in an excursion to a cave, activity included in the class “Biology of Subterranean Environments”. Students adopted monitoring methodologies to collect data on the environment and on different species, such as cricket, spiders and gastropods. More attention has been paid to the plethodontid salamander¬†Speleomantes italicus; individuals have been photographed, measured and weighed. We thank the Gruppo Grotte e Forre CAI Teramo for their support!
