Vitellocytes and vitellogenesis in cestodes in relation to embryonic development, egg production and life cycle.
TLDR
A comparison of interrelationships which exist among types of viteLLocytes, vitellogenesis, types of embryonic development, ovoviviparity and life cycles indicates parallelisms and analogies in adaptation to the parasitic way of life in different groups of cestodes. Expand
Active dispersal of oribatid mites into young soils
TLDR
Active dispersal is an important dispersal mechanism in the colonization of young soils, however, several species combine different dispersal mechanisms, so that the number of possible dispersal pathways is one factor that determines specimen- and species-richness in a newly found habitat. Expand
Biodiversity development of terrestrial testate amoebae: is there any succession at all?
TLDR
Cluster analysis of species inventory and abundances of numerous types of soil of different age highlight a classification of amoebal communities towards regional influences rather than local successional stages of vegetation, corroborate the fact that belowground communities operate differently from plant communitites in that they are characterised by additive invasion and not by interspecific competition.

Variation in millipede (Diplopoda) assemblages in oak woodlands of the Eastern European Plain.
Variation in millipede (Diplopoda) assemblages in oak woodlands of the Eastern European Plain was studied based on 46 soil samples collected from the vast territory: from west (Moldova and theExpand
Ultrastructural studies on the reproductive system of Gyrocotylidea and Amphilinidea (Cestoda)
TLDR
The morphology and function of vitelloducts and other genital ducts in Neodermata are discussed and the occurrence of syncytial epithelia in genitals ducts is considered to be an autapomorphy of Cestoda. Expand
Ultrastructural studies on the reproductive system of Gyrocotylidea and Amphilinidea (Cestoda)
TLDR
Vitellogenesis and the vitelloduct morphology of Gyrocotyle are compared with those of other parasitic Plathelminthes and numerous dictyosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, egg-shell granules and lipid droplets are formed. Expand
Antibacterial activity in the hemolymph of myriapods (Arthropoda).
TLDR
None of the myriapods tested had any bacteriostatic effect on Escherichia coli D-31 whereas the growth of gram-negative E. cloacae was inhibited and the antibacterial substances in the diplopod species were unstable when heated but were resistant to freezing. Expand
Ultrastructural characteristics of the protonephridial terminal organ and associated ducts of adult specimens of the Aspidogastrea, Digenea and Monogenea, with comments on the relationships between
TLDR
The study confirms that the Aspidogastrea and Digenea possess the same morphology of their protonephridial terminal organ and, although this differs slightly from that of most members of the Monogenea so far studied, it supports previous views on the close relationship of these groups. Expand
Slow-moving soil organisms on a water highway: aquatic dispersal and survival potential of Oribatida and Collembola in running water
TLDR
This is the first study to demonstrate successful passive dispersal with running water for two groups of terrestrial soil microarthropods, including subsequent colonisation of new soil. Expand
Ecology of millipedes (Diplopoda) in the context of global change.
Current knowledge on the effects of climate, food quality and land cover on millipedes is reviewed, to explore the potential responses of this arthropod group to global change. Climate warming couldExpand
