Toward a Global Phylogeny of the “Living Fossil" Crustacean Order of the Notostraca
Tadpole shrimp (Crustacea, Notostraca) are iconic inhabitants of temporary aquatic habitats worldwide. Often cited as prime examples of evolutionary stasis, surviving representatives closely resembleExpand

Early and late developmental arrest as complementary embryonic bet‐hedging strategies in African killifish
The production of dormant eggs is a crucial adaptation for African killifish of the genus Nothobranchius to survive in temporary waters. These habitats are often characterized by unpredictableExpand

Combined effects of cadmium exposure and temperature on the annual killifish (Nothobranchius furzeri).
Freshwater organisms are increasingly exposed to combinations of stressors. However, because it is time-consuming and costly, research on the interaction of stressors, such as compound toxicity andExpand

Dormancy and dispersal as mediators of zooplankton population and community dynamics along a hydrological disturbance gradient in inland temporary pools
At some stage in their life cycle, most zooplankton in temporary waters produce dormant eggs that assemble in a persistent egg bank to cope with unfavourable conditions. As part of a risk-spreadingExpand

Flexible dispersal dimorphism in zooplankton resting eggs: an example of repeated phenotypic coin flipping?
Theory predicts that spatio-temporal variation in habitat suitability will promote selection for dispersal. In addition to movement in space, dispersal gains an extra dimension in freshwaterExpand

Mechanistic and evolutionary aspects of light-induced dormancy termination in a temporary pond crustacean
Abstract. Most freshwater zooplankton species produce dormant eggs or other long-lived resistant life stages to bridge periods that are unsuitable for growth and reproduction. One of the principalExpand

Passive external transport of freshwater invertebrates by elephant and other mud-wallowing mammals in an African savannah habitat
SUMMARY 1. Recent findings hint at the potential importance of mammals affecting the spatial dynamics of aquatic organisms in areas where mammals live in close association with water. Perhaps theExpand

Acute sensitivity of the killifish Nothobranchius furzeri to a combination of temperature and reference toxicants (cadmium, chlorpyrifos and 3,4-dichloroaniline)
Aquatic organisms of inland waters are often subjected to a combination of stressors. Yet, few experiments assess mixed stress effects beyond a select group of standard model organisms. We studiedExpand

Environmental change as a driver of diversification in temporary aquatic habitats: does the genetic structure of extant fairy shrimp populations reflect historic aridification?
SUMMARY 1. Over the past 65 my, the Australian continent experienced a pronounced shift from predominantly wet, tropical, conditions to a much drier climate. Little is known, however, about theExpand

Propagule size and shape may promote local wind dispersal in freshwater zooplankton—a wind tunnel experiment
Current evidence supports that dormant eggs of many zooplankton species from inland waters can be transported by wind. However, little is known about variation in wind dispersal propensity amongExpand
