The Magnitude of Global Marine Species Diversity
The first register of the marine species of the world is compiled and it is estimated that between one-third and two-thirds of marine species may be undescribed, and previous estimates of there being well over one million marine species appear highly unlikely. Expand
The evolution of arthropod limbs

  • 1 May 2004
Limb morphology across the arthropods is reviewed using external morphological and internal anatomical data from both recent and fossil arthropod data, but no major new phylogenetic inferences are presented. Expand
Global diversity of copepods (Crustacea: Copepoda) in freshwater
Faunal diversity is compared between zoogeographic regions: the Palaearctic region has more than double the species richness of the next most diverse region, the Neotropical, and the greatest faunal connectivity is between PalAearctic and Nearctic regions, and identifies the Holarctic taxa. Expand
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, with emphasis in the new system placed more on the characteristics of the mouthparts than on swimming leg segmentation patterns. Expand

Making waves: The repeated colonization of fresh water by copepod crustaceans
This preliminary analysis supports a direct relationship between lineage diversity and time elapsed since colonization of fresh water, and indicates a succession of at least four major waves of colonization of inland continental waters. Expand
Global Coordination and Standardisation in Marine Biodiversity through the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) and Related Databases
The scale of the problems with species names, synonyms, and their classification is illustrated, and how WoRMS publishes online quality assured information on marine species is described to show increased taxonomic efficiency and quality control in marine biodiversity research and management. Expand
