Rapid, local adaptation of zooplankton behavior to changes in predation pressure in the absence of neutral genetic changes
Organisms producing resting stages provide unique opportunities for reconstructing the genetic history of natural populations. Diapausing seeds and eggs often are preserved in large numbers,Expand

Body size and dispersal mode as key traits determining metacommunity structure of aquatic organisms.
Relationships between traits of organisms and the structure of their metacommunities have so far mainly been explored with meta-analyses. We compared metacommunities of a wide variety of aquaticExpand

Global diversity of large branchiopods (Crustacea: Branchiopoda) in freshwater
With about 500 known species worldwide, the large brachiopods are a relatively small group of primitive crustaceans. With few exceptions they live in temporary aquatic systems that are most abundantExpand

Diapause, quiescence, hatching requirements: what we can learn from large freshwater branchiopods (Crustacea: Branchiopoda: Anostraca, Notostraca, Conchostraca)
The extent to which dormancy in large freshwater branchiopods is controlled endogenously (diapause) or exogenously (quiescence) is not always clear. It is assumed that both processes occur evenExpand

Freshwater rock pools: a review of habitat characteristics, faunal diversity and conservation value
SUMMARY 1. In the light of the recent surge of interest in small and often temporary wetlands as model systems for ecological and evolutionary research, this article reviews current knowledge onExpand

Ponds and pools as model systems in conservation biology, ecology and evolutionary biology
1. Ponds and pools, broadly defined in this paper to include all small and shallow standing waters that permanently or temporarily contain water, are numerous, diverse and important from aExpand

Any way the wind blows ‐ frequent wind dispersal drives species sorting in ephemeral aquatic communities
Despite an upsurge of interest in spatial interactions between communities and in the impact of dispersal on ecological and evolutionary processes, dispersal patterns and dynamics in naturalExpand

Invertebrate community patterns in Mediterranean temporary wetlands along hydroperiod and salinity gradients
1. Temporary aquatic habitats often are inhabited by a unique fauna and flora and contribute significantly to regional diversity. Temporary wetlands around the world are disappearing rapidly. TheExpand

Ecological characteristics of small farmland ponds: Associations with land use practices at multiple spatial scales
Abstract Despite their restricted surface area, small farmland ponds often have a high conservation value because they contribute significantly to regional biodiversity and contain rare or uniqueExpand
