Results of the present study indicate that the alkaline comet assay applied to fish blood cells is a valuable tool for determining the potential genotoxicity of water pollutants and confirm its usefulness in the evaluation of DNA damage in fish living in Al-polluted waters.
Application of the comet assay and detection of DNA damage in haemocytes of medicinal leech affected by aluminium pollution: a case study.

The copepod communities of karstic lakes along the eastern Adriatic coast were studied, finding that most of the meso-eutrophic lakes in the study area had Calanoida dominating, while Cyclopoida dominated in some oligotrophic and eutrophic lake groups.
A cave leech (Hirudinea, Erpobdellidae) from Croatia with unique morphological features
Despite the unique head morphology and the presence of lateral outgrowths, the anatomy and 18S rRNA gene sequence of this species indicate that it is a member of the Erpobdellidae, closely related to Dina.
Caddisfly (Insecta: Trichoptera) fauna of Papuk Nature Park, Croatia
The rare Beraea maurus was recorded for the first time in Croatia after the single finding in 1934 and some of these species were also hitherto not recorded within the ecoregion Hungarian lowlands (ER11).
Spatial distribution and seasonal changes of mayflies (Insecta, Ephemeroptera) in a Western Balkan peat bog

Three of the recorded species, Caenis luctuosa from the peat bog, and Eurylophella karelica and Leptophlebia marginata from the stream are new records for the Croatian mayfly fauna, and these results provide new and valuable information on the ecology of mayflies inpeat bog habitats.
CADDISFLY (INSECTA: TRICHOPTERA) FAUNA OF ALTERED AND MAN-MADE HABITATS IN THE DRAVA RIVER, NW CROATIA
Adult caddisflies were collected in altered and man-made habitats of the hydro-electric powerplant system in the Drava River in spring and autumn 2006. All sampled habitats (reservoir, drain-age…
