Press Conference on New Species Revealed in Cave

A press conference to reveal details of new species of invertebrate animals discovered in Israel that have been unknown to science until now will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, May 31, at 9:30 a.m. in room 3602 of the Geography Department (building 6, Social Sciences Faculty) of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mt. Scopus campus.

The new species were revealed in a cave that was uncovered as a result of excavations in a quarry in the vicinity of Ramle. Scientists from the Hebrew University who examined the cave say they discovered there a new and unique ecosystem, including previously unknown aquatic and terrestrial species.

Persons wishing to attend the briefing are asked to confirm their participation by contacting the Department of Media Relations of the Hebrew University, tel: 02-5882811. Please specify if you need parking arrangements.
