Global diversity of copepods (Crustacea: Copepoda) in freshwater
The zoogeographic distributions of the 2,814 species of copepods reported from freshwater are analysed. Faunal diversity is compared between zoogeographic regions: the Palaearctic region has moreExpand

A revision of the lichomologid complex (Copepoda: Poecilostomatoida), with the recognition of six new families
The superfamily Lichomolgoidea of Humes and Stock (1972, 1973) is revised to take account of the numerous new genera added since 1972. The Urocopiidae is recognized as only distantly related to theExpand

The developmental sequence of Argulus foliaceus (Crustacea: Branchiura)
We describe and illustrate the complete development of Argulus foliaceus L. A metanauplius is followed by nine juvenile stages. Eggs were detected in the thorax of the female at the 11th stage.Expand

Cladistic analysis of the calanoid Copepoda
Calanoid copepods are extremely successful inhabitants of marine, brackish and freshwater plankton. Morphological data are used to arrive at a first, parsimony-based phylogeny for the calanoidExpand

Crustacean classification: on-going controversies and unresolved problems*
The journey from Linnaeus’s original treatment to modern crustacean systematics is briefly characterised. Progress in our understanding of phylogenetic relationships within the Crustacea is linked toExpand

Giant females and dwarf males: a comparative study of nuptial organs in female Chondracanthidae (Crustacea: Copepoda)
Male chondracanthids attach to specific structures located near the genital apertures of the female and the term nuptial organ is proposed for these structures. The morphology of the nuptial organ inExpand

World Register of marine Cave Species (WoRCS): a new Thematic Species Database for marine and anchialine cave biodiversity
Scientific exploration of marine cave environments and anchialine ecosystems over recent decades has led to outstanding discoveries of novel taxa, increasing our knowledge of biodiversity. However,Expand

'Anchialine' redefined as a subterranean estuary in a crevicular or cavernous geological setting
An improved understanding of the anchialine ecosystem and geology warrants a redefinition of the term ‘anchialine.’ Originating from subareal biological observations, the term anchialine nowExpand

The lunule of caligid copepods: an evolutionarily novel structure
Nearly half of the genera of the family Caligidae possess an evolutionarily novel structure called the “lunule” on the ventral surface of the frontal plate. Lunules are paired cup‐like suckers thatExpand
