Abstract: Cape Verde archipelago (14°48’-17°18’N, 22°42’-25°18’W) is located 500 km off the West Coast of Africa. It includes ten islands and several small islets of volcanic origin. The insular character of Cape Verde, its distance from the continental shore compared to other East Atlantic islands, the water temperature, and the sea currents by which it is affected, make it an important biological area, especially from a bio-geographical point of view. </p>
