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.
MONOPHYLY AND PHYLOGENY OF BRANCHIOPODA, WITH FOCUS ON MORPHOLOGY AND HOMOLOGIES OF BRANCHIOPOD PHYLLOPODOUS LIMBS
TLDR
It is concluded that the large, undifferentiated ‘corm’ of the limb most likely is an enlarged basis, and the question of a marine versus freshwater origin of Branchiopoda is discussed.
A phylogenetic analysis of the Conchostraca and Cladocera (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Diplostraca)

  • 1 April 1998
TLDR
A computer-assisted cladistic analysis on morphological characters of the Diplostraca (ConchostracA and Cladocera) has been undertaken for the first time and a suggested classificatory hierarchy is presented.
Phylogeny of Branchiopoda (Crustacea) based on a combined analysis of morphological data and six molecular loci
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of branchiopod crustaceans have been in the focus of a number of recent morphological and molecular systematic studies, and almost all analyses result in the same topology when only ingroup taxa are considered.
External morphology of the male of Cyclestheria hislopi (Baird, 1859) (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Spinicaudata), with a comparison of male claspers among the Conchostraca and Cladocera and its bearing
The adult male of Cyclestheria hislopi, sole member of the spinicaudate conchostracan clam shrimp family Cyclestheriidae and a species of potential phylogenetic importance, is described for the first
Larval and post‐larval development of the branchiopod clam shrimp Cyclestheria hislopi (Baird, 1859) (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Conchostraca, Spinicaudata)
TLDR
A comparison between Cyclestheria and the Upper Cambrian ‘Orsten’ fossil Rehbachiella kinnekullensis reveals a remarkable similarity in the endite morphology of the trunk limbs.
Atlas of Crustacean Larvae
TLDR
Atlas of Crustacean Larvae, more than 45 of the world's leading crustacean researchers explain and illustrate the beauty and complexity of the many larval life stages, and small differences in anatomy are shown to be suited to the behaviors and survival mechanisms of each species.
