Global diversity of large branchiopods (Crustacea: Branchiopoda) in freshwater
TLDR
The Branchiopoda are monophyletic, but inter-ordinal relationships, as well as many evolutionary relationships at lower taxonomic levels are still unclear, and ongoing molecular studies will more accurately depict species diversity and phylogenetic patterns. Expand
Cladocera and Other Branchiopoda
TLDR
This chapter introduces the general biology, morphology, phylogeny, evolution, ecology, physiology, and classification of Branchiopods, with focus on those found in freshwaters of North America. Expand
Revision of the Extant Genera of Limnadiidae (Branchiopoda: Spinicaudata)
TLDR
Both molecular and morphological data strongly support eight genera of the spinicaudatan clam shrimp family Limnadiidae, two of which are new to science and one (Paralimnadia) that is resurrected. Expand
REVISION OF THE NEARCTIC LEPIDURUS (NOTOSTRACA)
TLDR
The results of this work and King and Hanner's (1998) genetic data demonstrate the presence of a cryptic species within the L. packardi morphotype, described here as Lepidurus cryptus n. Expand
Tsetse population dynamics and distribution: a new analytical approach.
TLDR
A method based on Moran curves is presented for determining monthly changes in density independent mortality acting on tsetse fly populations under natural conditions and it is suggested that the possibility of tsete control in, or eradication from, any area is related to the distance of the mean environmental conditions from the predicted optimum at the same mean temperature. Expand
Transmission of crayfish plague.
TLDR
The present study shows that there is a risk of transmission of crayfish plague via fish faeces via fish skin, and this application is particularly important for the importation of American cray fish, which are in general suspected to carry A. astaci in their cuticle. Expand
The amplexial morphology of selected Anostraca
TLDR
Females in the genus Parartemia and the families Chirocephalidae and Linderiellidae have morphological characters within their amplexial region that complement the ornamentation of the male's second antennae, creating a `lock and key' fit unique to each species. Expand
Branchiopoda (Anostraca, Notostraca, Laevicaudata, Spinicaudata, Cyclestherida)
TLDR
The large branchiopods are approximately 500 species of primitive crustaceans found in temporary and saline inland aquatic habitats and form the crustacean class Branchiopoda, which is used as indicators of aquatic ecosystem health, which ultimately reflects on land-use practices and management.
