Eradication of Aedes aegypti from a village in Vietnam, using copepods and community participation.
In northern Vietnam, copepods of the genus Mesocyclops were used for biological control of Aedes aegypti, the principal vector of dengue viruses, by inoculation into wells, large cement tanks,Expand
Field trials in temporary pools, marshes, and rice fields have demonstrated that introduction of the right copepod species to the right habitat at the right time can eliminate Anopheles or floodwater Aedes larvae. Expand
Copepoda (Crustacea) from fresh waters of the Florida Everglades, U.S.A., with a description of Eucyclops conrowae n. sp.
This first collection of Copepoda (Crustacea) from fresh waters in the Florida Everglades yielded 13 species: the calanoid Osphranticum labronectum, the cyclopoids Acanthocyclops robustus, EucyclopsExpand
Redescription of Parastenocaris brevipes Kessler and description of a new species of Parastenocaris (Copepoda: Harpacticoida: Parastenocarididae) from the U.S.A.
The new species little resembles any known North American parastenocaridid, nor is it assignable to any presently defined species-group in the genus. Expand
National progress in dengue vector control in Vietnam: survey for Mesocyclops (Copepoda), Micronecta (Corixidae), and fish as biological control agents.
This study demonstrates that there is an abundance of local Mesocyclops spp. Expand
Diversity, ecology and evolution of groundwater copepods
Copepod distributions at small spatial scales are most strongly affected by habitat type and heterogeneity, with sediment grain size and availability of organic matter being important habitat characteristics, and phylogenetic and distributional relicts and a high degree of endemism at different taxonomic levels are reflected.

The impact of an introduced bivalve (Corbicula fluminea) on the benthos of a sandy stream
Investigating the effect of an exotic, burrowing bivalve (Corbicula fluminea) on the benthic fauna of a sandy-bottomed stream found it to have the potential to influence the streambed community in different ways, particularly when it both filter- and pedal-feeds. Expand

The distribution and ecology of species of cyclopoid copepods of the genusThermocyclops in the western hemisphere are reviewed and knowledge of population dynamics, feeding and reproductive biology of several planktonic species is reviewed. Expand
Natural control of larval Anopheles albimanus (Diptera: Culicidae) by the predator Mesocyclops (Copepoda: Cyclopoida).
It is concluded that Mesocyclops may prove useful for biological control of Anopheles by observing to prey readily upon first-instar An. Expand
A new species of Stygonitocrella (Crustacea: Copepoda: Ameiridae), the first report of the genus in North America
A new species of ameirid harpacticoid copepod, Stygonitocrella sequoyahi, was collected in streambeds in Arkansas and Oklahoma, U.S.A, and is described herein, the first record of a member of the genus from North America. Expand
