What animals can live in cryoconite holes? A faunal review
Despite the large number of studies on glaciers, knowledge regarding biota in cryoconite holes is limited. Cryophilic animals are often neglected in ecological studies on glacial habitats, but are… Expand
The terrestrial and freshwater invertebrate biodiversity of the archipelagoes of the Barents Sea; Svalbard, Franz Josef Land and Novaya Zemlya
Arctic terrestrial ecosystems are generally considered to be species poor, fragile and often isolated. Nonetheless, their intricate complexity, especially that of the invertebrate component, is… Expand
Diversity and distribution of Tardigrada in Arctic cryoconite holes
Despite the fact that glaciers and ice sheets have been monitored for more than a century, knowledge on the glacial biota remains poor. Cryoconite holes are water-filled reservoirs on a glacier’s… Expand
Re-description of the Arctic tardigrade Tenuibiotus voronkovi (Tumanov, 2007 (Eutardigrada; Macrobiotidea), with the first molecular data for the genus.
Tardigrada is phylum of micrometazoans widely distributed throughout the world, because of old descriptions and insufficient morphometric data, many species currently need revision and… Expand
Accumulation of atmospheric radionuclides and heavy metals in cryoconite holes on an Arctic glacier.
Surface of glaciers is covered by mineral and organic dust, together with microorganisms forming cryoconite granules. Despite fact that glaciers and ice sheets constitute significance part of land… Expand

Euglenida are an important element in almost all aquatic ecosystems. They are known to parasitize animals such as copepods and flatworms, but have never been found in any other microscopic group.… Expand
Area, depth and elevation of cryoconite holes in the Arctic do not influence Tardigrada densities
Water bears (Tardigrada) are known as one of the most extremophile animals in the world. They inhabit environments from the deepest parts of the oceans up to the highest mountains. One of the most… Expand

Abstract. Gastrotricha is a cosmopolitan phylum of aquatic and semi-terrestrial invertebrates that comprises ∼820 described species. To date, freshwater gastrotrichs have not been the subject of… Expand
Palm house – biodiversity hotspot or risk of invasion? Aquatic invertebrates: The special case of Monogononta (Rotifera) under greenhouse conditions
Abstract Greenhouses form favourable conditions for establishing stable populations of native as well as invasive alien microinvertebrates. Investigations of palm houses have a long tradition and… Expand
