  • 1 December 2005
Australia is a land of salt lakes and despite low human population density, many lakes are adversely impacted by a range of factors. Secondary salinisation is the most pernicious force degradingExpand

Saline lakes of the Paroo, inland New South Wales, Australia
Twenty-five lakes from fresh to crystallizing brine in the semi-desert of northwestern New South Wales, Australia, were studied regularly for 27 months. The lakes are small, shallow and ephemeral.Expand

Animal communities in three Victorian lakes of differing salinity
In faunal studies on salt lakes, attention is often focused on species distribution patterns with respect to salinity (e.g. Beadle 1943; Hussainy 1969; Rawson & Moore 1944). Yet in any series ofExpand

A study of the benthic communities of twenty lakes in the South Island, New Zealand
SUMMARY. The benthos of a heterogeneous series of lakes was sampled in late winter-spring (before insect emergence) to determine species composition, community structure and standing crops. Nearly 50Expand

Toward a Global Phylogeny of the “Living Fossil" Crustacean Order of the Notostraca
Tadpole shrimp (Crustacea, Notostraca) are iconic inhabitants of temporary aquatic habitats worldwide. Often cited as prime examples of evolutionary stasis, surviving representatives closely resembleExpand

A Study of Benthic Communities in Some Saline Lakes in Saskatchewan and Alberta, Canada
The spring benthos of 22 lakes ranging from 1–88 gl−1 salinity contained 58 species of macroinvertebrates, but only 23 species occurred in waters >3 gl−1. The amphipod Hyalella azteca and theExpand

A Comparative study of the limnology of three maar lakes in western Victoria. I. Physiography and physicochemical features
Lakes Purrumbete, Bullenmerri and Gnotuk are three typical maar lakes of volcanic origin in western Victoria. They are of similar size and altitude and are 45, 66 and 18.5 m deep respectively. TheExpand

Hydrological stability drives both local and regional diversity patterns in rock pool metacommunities
A main challenge associated with macro ecological gradients such as the latitudinal diversity gradient (LDG) is that proxies of potential underlying processes are often correlated at large scales.Expand

A revision of the Australian endemic clam shrimp genus Limnadopsis Spencer & Hall (Crustacea: Branchiopoda: Spinicaudata: Limnadiidae)
Species of Limnadopsis Spencer & Hall occur in temporary pools in arid and semi-arid areas of Australia. The genus is redefined and Limnadopsium Novojilov treated as a junior synonym. As in otherExpand
