This resource contains an English translation of P.A. Chappuis' article "A new biotope of aquatic underground fauna" and a copy of the original “Un nouveau biotope de la faune souterraine aquatique” published in 1946 in the Bulletin de la Section Scientifique de l’Académie Roumaine, 29: 1-8. The article was translated by S.P. Herzog, edited by A. Herzog Howell, and the translation also includes a prefatory note by A.S. Ward and S.P. Herzog. Chappuis' article was the first to identify the new biotope that would later by named the hyporheic zone (i.e., by T. Orghidan in 1955). We hope that by making this article available to English speakers, a new generation of scientists will learn more about the origins of hyporheic science and be inspired as they make their own discoveries.
