Morphological characteristics of water mite larvae of the genus Arrenurus Duges, 1834, with notes on the phylogeny of the genus and an identification key
The larval characteristics of 42 European Arrenurus species are provided, based on earlier descriptions, and recommendations on changes to the traditional subgeneric systematics are given, concerning mainly the subgenera Micruracarus and Truncaturus. Expand
What factors shape female phenotypes of a poleward‐moving damselfly at the edge of its range?
It is suggested that models need to incorporate the interplay of stressful conditions and evolutionary processes at the expansion front to arrive at robust predictions of future species distributions under global warming. Expand
Parasitism of Odonata by Arrenurus (Acari: Hydrachnidia) larvae in the Lake Świdwie, nature reserve (NW Poland)
The body sizes of the parasites suggest that approximately 50% of body size growth of water mites from subgenus Arrenurus s. Expand
Parasitism of water mite larvae (Hydrachnellae) of the genus Hydrachna on water beetles in Poland
Six species of the genus Hydrachna parasitizing beetles were found by investigations on 35150 water beetles (six families and 244 species) and the relations between the size of larvae and the sampling suggested that the reproduction occurs from spring to summer. Expand
First observations in Turkish Thrace on water mite larvae parasitism of Ranatra linearis by Hydrachna gallica (Acari: Hydrachnidia)
It was found that only nine individuals, belonging two different species in a total of 367 hemipteran specimens, were parasitized by larval water mites in Turkish Thrace. Expand
Regeneration of the molluscan fauna of a small lowland river after dredging
Dredging of the river to remove macrophytic vegetation and bottom sediment is a common anthropogenic disturbance in the river ecosystem that directly and indirectly influences benthic invertebrates,Expand
Parasitism of water mite (Hydrachnellae) larvae of the genus Eylais on water beetles in Poland
The relations between the body size and the data of sampling suggest a prolongation of the reproduction nearly over the entire spring-summer period, or the occurrence of more than one generation during the year. Expand
A thermocline as an obstacle to the spread of water mites (Acari: Hydrachnidia) across the lake profile
A strong negative correlation was observed between the drop in temperature in the thermocline and the abundance and number of water mite species living beneath the thermOCline, and lower layers of the lake were increasingly penetrated by water mites as the temperatures above and below the thermokline were becoming more uniform.
