The boundaries of river systems: the metazoan perspective
Summary 1. This overview of metazoans associated with the riparian/groundwater interface focuses on the fauna inhabiting substratum interstices within the stream bed and in alluvial aquifers
Present state and future prospects for groundwater ecosystems
Ecological and socioeconomic aspects of subterranean hydrosystems have changed during the past 40–50 years. The major environmental pressures (mainly anthropogenic ones) impact the quantity and
The chaetotaxy of Cypridacea (Crustacea, Ostrocoda) limbs: proposals for a descriptive model
TLDR
The need for better and more systematic descriptions of the chaetotaxy (especially data concerning the shape, structure and pattern of distribution of the setae) is emphasized and it is emphasized that the functional morphology of most of theSetae can be better understood when the whole organ is studied of which thesetae are only a component.
Multi‐proxy evidence for early to mid‐Holocene environmental and climatic changes in northeastern Poland
Lauterbach, S., Brauer, A., Andersen, N., Danielopol, D. L., Dulski, P., Hüls, M., Milecka, K., Namiotko, T., Plessen, B., von Grafenstein, U. & DecLakes participants 2010: Multi‐proxy evidence for
Environmental responses to Lateglacial climatic fluctuations recorded in the sediments of pre‐Alpine Lake Mondsee (northeastern Alps)
Investigation of the sedimentary record of pre‐Alpine Lake Mondsee (Upper Austria) focused on the environmental reaction to rapid Lateglacial climatic changes. Results of this study reveal complex
An essay to assess the age of the freshwater interstitial ostracods of Europe
TLDR
An assessment of the antiquity of several interstitial ostracod groups has been attempted using direct evidence from the phylogenetical affinities between living hypogean and fossil ostracOD species, and indirectevidence from the morphological characters of the subterranean ostracods.

TLDR
A modern approach to the ecology of the groundwater fauna is to consider it within an individualistic and historical perspective, and it is emphasized that groundwater animals migrate actively within the interstitial space and are able to find their preferred habitat.
Morphological disparity in populations with and without sexual reproduction: a case study in Eucypris virens (Crustacea: Ostracoda)
TLDR
Multivariate analysis of morphometric descriptors (Elliptic Fourier coefficients) show that efficient discriminant functions can be obtained to differentiate between sexual and asexual populations, left and right valves, as well as among local populations (86.7% correct classifications in average).
