The extent to which dormancy in large freshwater branchiopods is controlled endogenously (diapause) or exogenously (quiescence) is not always clear. It is assumed that both processes occur even within the same brood. Based on the effectiveness of common diapause-deactivating processes such as desiccation, hibernation, and resting, it can be stated that diapause is not a general process controlling responsiveness of large freshwater branchiopod eggs. Only in limited cases unequivocal evidence… 

The influence of processing and temperature conditions on hatching of resting eggs of Streptocephalus proboscideus (Crustacea: Branchiopoda: Anostraca)

Hatching was comparable in untreated and in decapsulated cysts and was significantly higher than at 25 °C, and pre-treatment with 7.5% NaOCl for 5–10 minutes, resulted in higher hatching than other decapsulation procedures and durations.

Hatching phenology, life history and egg bank size of fairy shrimp Branchipodopsis spp. (Branchiopoda, Crustacea) in relation to the ephemerality of their rock pool habitat

Additional common garden or transplant experiments will be required to assess the relative importance of environmental and genetic components in explaining the observed variation and acquire more insight into the trade-offs that lie at the base of the evolution of life history strategies along the pond permanence gradient.

Dormancy in freshwater zooplankton: Induction, termination and the importance of benthic-pelagic coupling

Abstract.For a short-lived organism, such as a freshwater zooplankter, the ways of coping with years of local recruitment failure are either to disperse between habitats and recolonise or to disperse

Risk reduction strategies in Branchipus schaefferi (Crustacea: Anostraca: Branchiopoda) as adaptation to a variable environment

There appears to be a genetic base for the clutch size of females in Branchipus schaefferi, which reduced risk by spreading hatching time of her resting eggs over consecutive inundations, presumably as an adaptation to the unpredictability of the habitat.

Hatching response to temperature along a latitudinal gradient by the fairy shrimp Branchinecta lindahli (Crustacea; Branchiopoda; Anostraca) in culture conditions

Pranchinecta lindahli is a broadly distributed fairy shrimp, reported from a range of temporary wetland habitat types in arid western North America, demonstrating that body size is sacrificed to produce at least a few normal eggs during unfavourable years.

Extremely short diapause in rotifers and its fitness consequences

A conceptual model of RE development is proposed, which assumes two obligatory phases of pre- and post-diapause development and a facultative phase of dormancy, because the latter phase may be missing in spontaneously developing REs.

Observations on the hatching dynamics and phenology of co-occurring large branchiopods from a small temporary pool in western India using ex situ sediment rehydration

Using a tropical temporary pool as a study system, and with successive, ex situ hydrations of sediments, the hatching phenology and dynamics of co-occurring NotostracA and Anostraca are studied, and the effects of cyclical hydroperiods on these dynamics are studied.

Terminating Dormancy: Hatching Phenology of Sympatric Large Branchiopods in Siangtian Pond, a Temporary Wetland in Taiwan

The hatching phenology of E. braueriana was investigated to find that the longer the hatching duration and higher hatching rate, the better the adaptation to the hydroregime of Siangtian Pond.

Preliminary observations on the effect of light and temperature on the hatching success and rate of Lepidurus arcticus eggs

It is indicated that changes in temperature affecting the Arctic may significantly impact phenology of this key species in the region, and the persistence of this species may be at risk in areas were arctic lakes are expected to warm to such levels during the summer months.

Some Adaptations of Limnadia stanleyana King (Crustacea: Branchiopoda: Conchostraca) to a Temporary Freshwater Environment

Limnadia stanleyana King (Crustacea: Conchostraca) which inhabits temporary rainpools near Sydney, Australia, was studied to determine how it survives in this severe environment, with some adaptations that enable the species to counteract this unpredictability of the environment.

Seasonal Occurrence of a Branchiopod Crustacean, Limnadia stanleyana King (Conchostraca) in Eastern Australia

How eggs are prevented from hatching during the cool months of the year when they have least opportunity of giving rise to sexually mature conchostracans is described.

Erratic occurrence of anostracans in a temporary pond: colonization and extinction or adaptation to variations in annual weather?

The cause of erratic occurrence patterns and changes in species composition of anostraca was probably due to long-term viability of eggs in association with species specific requirements of the embryo for certain quantities of precipitation at critical times of the year.

An investigation of the factors influencing the hatching of eggs of the fairy shrimpStreptocephalus macrourus showed that light was the only factor of those investigated that was obligatory for hatching, and eggs which had not been desiccated hatched successfully.

Influence of temperature on hatching of eggs of Lepidurus couesii (Crustacea, Notostraca)

Both short- and long-term survival of populations of the species appears to be fostered by the adaptive response to temperature shown by the eggs, particularly in the case ofadpole shrimps.

Natural growth and reproduction in Triops granarius (Lucas) (Crustacea: Notostraca)

As a candidate for aquaculture, the species has failings such as low hatching rate and cannibalism, but it grows rapidly and produces eggs over an extended period.

Physicochemical Factors Inducing Embryonic Development and Spring Hatching of the European Fairy Shrimp Siphonophanes Grubei (Dybowsky) (Crustacea: Anostraca)

Final hatching was stimulated by an elevated pCO2 comparable to that observed in the field before thaw, taking effect when sufficient oxygen became available during thaw and a model of the factors regulating the life cycle of this anostracan throughout the year is presented.

Egg Hatching and Life History of a Fairy Shrimp Branchinecta Mackini Dexter (Crustacea: Anostraca) in a Mohave Desert Playa (Rabbit Dry Lake)

Observations on populations of Branchinecta mackini in temporary ponds showed that hatching of dehydrated cysts (eggs) follows initial entry of water into the basin if salinity remains low, and laboratory studies showed that egg hatching was controlled by both salinity and oxygen operating in various combinations to inhibit or stimulate hatch.

The nature of the egg hatching mechanism is discussed, and factors which limit hatching may require separation from those which limit larval survivorship in ecological studies of temporary pond branchiopods.
