Historical biogeography of the neotropical Diaptomidae (Crustacea: Copepoda)
The main patterns of endemism in neotropical freshwater diaptomid copepods are highly congruent with other freshwater taxa, suggesting a strong historical signal in determining the distribution of the family in the Neotropics. Expand
A new genus of Parastenocarididae (Copepoda, Harpacticoida) from the Tocantins River basin (Goiás, Brazil), and a phylogenetic analysis of the Parastenocaridinae
This is the first time a non-Remaneicaris Parastenocaridinae is described from a Neotropical region indicating that Parastinocarids species were already present in a vast geographical area, before the split of the Gondwana. Expand
Establishment of a new genus for Parastenocaris itica (Copepoda, Harpacticoida) from El Salvador, Central America, with discussion of the Parastenocaris fontinalis and P. proserpina groups
A new genus of Parastenocarididae is described from the Neotropical region, described from El Salvador, Central America, and represented by Iticocaris itica, the males of which both share the forceps-like elongated apophysis. Expand
Two new species of Diaptomidae (Crustacea: Copepoda: Calanoida) from the Neotropical Region (Paraná River)
Two new species of Diaptomidae were found in the Middle Paraná River and both species are placed in “Diaptomus” sensu lato as a temporary placement. Expand
Identification guide to some Diaptomid species (Crustacea, Copepoda, Calanoida, Diaptomidae) of “de la Plata” River Basin (South America)
This is the first attempt to compile comprehensive taxonomic information on this group of copepods in this region, and it is expected to become a useful tool for biologists and young taxonomists interested in the crustacean biota of the Neotropical region. Expand
Cyclopoid copepods as bioindicators of eutrophication in reservoirs: Do patterns hold for large spatial extents?
Abstract Some species of copepods are sensitive to water quality oscillations from natural or anthropogenic causes. Information on basic ecological attributes such as abundance can be helpful in theExpand
The neotropical species of Mesocyclops (Copepoda, Cyclopoida): an upgraded identification key and comments on selected taxa
An analysis of upgraded characters used in the taxonomy of cyclopine copepods to provide a new key for the identification of the members of the freshwater genus Mesocyclops recorded in the neotropical region results in clarification of the taxonomical status of two nominal species not previously revised. Expand
New Diaptomidae records (Crustacea: Copepoda: Calanoida: Diaptomidae) in the Neotropical region
TIn this study we present 208 new diaptomids records, including 36 species from 10 genera. They are the result of new samplings as well as of the revision of samples from previous surveys fromExpand
Regulation of the abundance and turnover of copepod species by temperature, turbidity and habitat type in a large river basin
Freshwater copepods were sampled in the La Plata River basin to identify the processes that affect beta diversity and to determine the main factors influencing their geographical distribution andExpand
