The dry weight estimate of biomass in a selection of Cladocera, Copepoda and Rotifera from the plankton, periphyton and benthos of continental waters
A conclusion applicable to the 3 groups is that, as a rule, limnetic species weigh relatively less than littoral, periphytic or benthic species.
The Caspian Lake: History, biota, structure, and function

The elongate, endorheic Caspian Lake has a north‐south orientation and its main freshwater inflow, the Volga River, enters at the shallow north end. Two deep basins occupy its central and southern…
The distribution and ecology of the fresh- and brackish-water medusae of the world
- H. Dumont
- Environmental ScienceHydrobiologia
The feeding ecology of the freshwater medusae is examined, finding that like all Cnidaria, they are opportunistic predators; many fish in the invasive part of their range avoid them, but some macrocrustaceans readily consume them.
Population development of the invader ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi, in the Black Sea and in other seas of the Mediterranean basin
Analysis of seasonal dynamics of M. leidyi in the Black Sea and in other seas of the Mediterranean basin indicates similarities in the timing of maximum abundance and biomass, in spite of some differences in the initiation and duration of reproduction.
The Nile : origin, environments, limnology and human use
- H. Dumont
- Environmental Science
The book discusses the Nile basin from a holistic point of view, giving due attention to its geological history, hydrology, climate, and the full diversity of subsystems like lakes and swamps. It…
A molecular phylogeny of the Odonata (Insecta)
Several recent taxonomic changes at the genus level, based on morphology, were confirmed, but other morphology‐based taxonomies have misclassified taxa considered currently as Megapodagrionidae, Platycnemididae and Amphipterygidae and have underestimated the number of family‐level clades.
Phylogenetic relationships, divergence time estimation, and global biogeographic patterns of calopterygoid damselflies (odonata, zygoptera) inferred from ribosomal DNA sequences.

A molecular phylogeny combined with a geographic analysis produced a well-supported phylogenetic hypothesis that partly confirms the traditional taxonomy and describes distributional patterns and a monophyletic origin of the calopterygoids emerges, revealing the Hetaerinid clade as sister group to the CalopteryGidae sensu strictu.
A checklist of names in Alona Baird 1843 (Crustacea: Cladocera: Chydoridae) and their current status: an analysis of the taxonomy of a lump genus
Analysis of Alona taxonomy based on the checklist shows historical trends and long periods of instability in the systematics of these micro-crustaceans.
Invasion of the Caspian Sea by the Comb Jellyfish Mnemiopsis Leidyi (Ctenophora)
This paper presents a new probabilistic analysis of the response of the immune system to carbon dioxide in response to the presence of carboniferous strata of the sediments of the North Atlantic Ocean.
