Stable isotope analyses of the pelagic food web in Lake Baikal
Stable isotope ratios of various organisms were analyzed to elucidate food web structure in the pelagic zone of Lake Baikal. The pelagic food web of Lake Baikal is simple and consists of five majorExpand
Rapid ecological change in the coastal zone of Lake Baikal (East Siberia): Is the site of the world's greatest freshwater biodiversity in danger?
Abstract Ecological degradation of the benthic littoral zone is an emerging, urgent problem at Lake Baikal (East Siberia), the most species-rich lake on Earth. Within the last 5 years, multipleExpand
The endemic Cladophorales (Ulvophyceae) of ancient Lake Baikal represent a monophyletic group of very closely related but morphologically diverse species
Lake Baikal, the oldest lake in the world, is home to spectacular biodiversity and extraordinary levels of endemism. While many of the animal species flocks from Lake Baikal are famous examples ofExpand
The under-ice and bottom periods in the life cycle of Aulacoseira baicalensis (K. Meyer) Simonsen, a principal Lake Baikal alga
The under-ice development of the meroplanktonic diatom Aulacoseira baicalensis was studied, using underwater video recording. This is an ice alga, which not only succeeds in vegetating under the ice,Expand
Ultrastructural study of the central nervous system of endemic Geocentrophora (Prorhynchida, Platyhelminthes) from Lake Baikal
The ultrastructure of the central nervous system of four species of the Geocentrophoragroup (Prorhynchida, Lecithoepitheliata) has been studied with Geocentrophora waginias a model organism. This isExpand
A new species of giant planarian from Lake Baikal, with some remarks on character states in the Dendrocoelidae (Platyhelminthes, Tricladida, Paludicola)
On the basis of newly collected material the subspecies Bdellocephala angarensis bathyalis Timoshkin & Porfirjeva, 1989 is raised to full species status, B. bathyalis Timoshkin & Porfirjeva, 1989.Expand
Turbellaria Lecithoepitheliata: morphology, systematics, phylogeny
A review of the literature on the world fauna of lecithoepitheliata and Prolecithophora and extensive observations by the author on species of the Prorhynchidae, including cosmopolitan species asExpand
Molecular-phylogenetic analysis of cyclopoids (Copepoda: Cyclopoida) from Lake Baikal and its water catchment basin
Baikalian cyclopoids represent one of the richest endemic faunas of freshwater cyclopoid copepods. The genus Diacyclops Kiefer, 1927 is the most numerous by species number in the lake. In this work,Expand
A new species of Pachycordyle (Hydrozoa, Clavidae) from Lake Biwa (Japan), with remarks on this and related Clavid genera*
The history of research on species of Pachycordyle and related genera is discussed. A description and differential diagnosis of a new species, Pachycordyle kubotai , is presented. Hydroid colonies,Expand
