Invertebrates of Andalusia, exhibition
Invertebrates in Andalusia.
This exhibition aims to introduce the public to the rich biodiversity of invertebrates of the Autonomous Community of Andalusia. Five themes govern the exhibition including biodiversity, conservation and taxonomy.
Andalusia is the Spanish region, which contains the most endemic and characteristic plant or animal species. Overall, the biodiversity of the Iberian Peninsula is conducive to a rich variety of very singular invertebrates.
19 bronze sculptures created by the sculptor José María Moreno from Granada complement the exhibition, as well as audiovisual spaces showing the invertebrate species most at risk in Andalusia with an hourglass counting down as a species disappears every 20 minutes.
