Handbuch der Zoologie: eine Naturgeschichte der Stä mme des Tierreiches. Gegrü ndet von Prof. Dr. Willy Kü kenthal. Herausgegeben von Dr. Thilo Krumbach. Dritter Band: Tardigrada, Pentastomida,Expand
Advances in Taxonomy, Ecology, and Biogeography of Dirivultidae (Copepoda) Associated with Chemosynthetic Environments in the Deep Sea
Background Copepoda is one of the most prominent higher taxa with almost 80 described species at deep-sea hydrothermal vents. The unique copepod family Dirivultidae with currently 50 describedExpand
Asterocheres flustrae n. sp. (Copepoda: Siphonostomatoida: Asterocheridae) associated with Flustra foliacea L. (Bryozoa) from the White Sea
Asterocheres flustrae n. sp. is described from Flustra foliacea L. (Bryozoa) found in the Kandalaksha Bay of the White Sea. This is the first siphonostomatoid copepod to be reported in associationExpand
Biodiversity patterns, environmental drivers and indicator species on a high-temperature hydrothermal edifice, Mid-Atlantic Ridge
Knowledge on quantitative faunal distribution patterns of hydrothermal communities in slow-spreading vent fields is particularly scarce, despite the importance of these ridges in the global mid-oceanExpand
A new species of deep-sea Tegastidae (Crustacea: Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from 9°50'N on the East Pacific Rise, with remarks on its ecology.
Both male and female of the new deep-sea species Smacigastes barti sp. nov. (Tegastidae, Sars) are described in detail. Copepoda is one of the most diversified taxa at deep-sea hydrothermal vents,Expand
The Identity of Protopodal Segments and the Ramus of Maxilla 2 of Copepods (Copepoda)
The protopod of the maxilla 2 of copepods is composed of a proximal syncoxa with a praecoxal endite proximally and a coxal endite distally. The basis bears two endites, and the ramus is an endopodExpand
Two New Species of Monstrillopsis Sars (Crustacea: Copepoda: Monstrilloida) from the White Sea and Norway, with Comments on M. dubia Scott
A new species of monstrilloid copepod, Monstrillopsis ferrarii n. sp., based on four adult female specimens collected in the White Sea, northern Russia, is described and illustrated. The new speciesExpand
A new and primitive genus and species of deep-sea Tegastidae (Crustacea, Copepoda, Harpacticoida) from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, 37°N (Azores Triple Junction, Lucky Strike)
Smacigastes micheli gen. nov., sp. nov. (Copepoda, Harpacticoida, Tegastidae) is described, from specimens obtained during in situ colonization experiments in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (37°N, LuckyExpand
Is the meiofauna a good indicator for climate change and anthropogenic impacts?
Our planet is changing, and one of the most pressing challenges facing the scientific community revolves around understanding how ecological communities respond to global changes. From coastal toExpand
