Analyses were made from the literature on the bivalve molluscs of the ancient lakes: Baikal, Caspian Sea, Ochrid, Khubsugul, Tanganyika, Titicaca, Biwa and Balkhash. Comments are given on faunistic and geographical similarities. The Bivalvia fauna of each lake is briefly reviewed. 
Possible effect of Balanus improvisus on Cerastoderma glaucum distribution in the south-western Caspian Sea
Analysis of communities of the invasive Balanus improvisus and native Cerastoderma glaucum populations in the south-western Caspian Sea strengthens the hypotheses asserting the possible negative effects of exotic species on endemic species.
The neglected side of speciation in ancient lakes: phylogeography of an inconspicuous mollusc taxon in lakes Ohrid and Prespa
The patterns of speciation found in the genus Pisidium are compared to patterns in morphologically distinct molluscan groups in lakes Ohrid und Prespa and suggested scenarios of the endemic pea clam evolution within both lakes are suggested.
Evolution of ancient lake bivalves: the Lymnocardiinae (Cardiidae) of the Caspian Sea
Given the complex history of the Ponto-Caspian region and the Caspian Sea in particular, the Lymnocardiinae would represent an interesting study object for addressing the consequences of environmental changes on biotic evolution at various spatial and temporal scales.
Patterns of Freshwater Bivalve Global Diversity and the State of Phylogenetic Studies on the Unionoida, Sphaeriidae, and Cyrenidae *
The current state of knowledge of freshwater bivalve diversity and evolution is reviewed in order to identify some of the “Great Unanswered Questions” in the field.
Patterns and Processes of Speciation in Ancient Lakes
An account of the taxonomy and phylogeny of the Lake Tanganyika cichlid species assemblage, its relationship to the African cICHlid fauna, key factors leading to the astonishing diversity and recently proposed alternative age estimates are presented.
Limnological research in the deep southern subalpine lakes: synthesis, directions and perspectives
The paper emphasises the need to define criteria to be used to distinguish research able to produce relevant results and predictive models, which are essential elements for an efficient management of water resources.
Highlights of large lake research and management in Europe
Although large lakes are among the best-studied ecosystems in the world, the application to them of environmental regulations such as the European Water Framework Directive is a challenging task and requires that several natural and management aspects specific to these water bodies are adequately considered.
Tectonics of the baikal rift deduced from volcanism and sedimentation: a review oriented to the Baikal and Hovsgol lake systems.
A comprehensive record of sedimentation derived from two stacked boreholes drilled at the submerged Akademichesky ridge indicates that the deep freshwater Lake Baikal existed for at least 8.4 Ma, while the exact formation of the lake in its roughly present-day shape and volume is unknown.

Lake Titicaca : a synthesis of limnological knowledge
This chapter discusses the phytoplankton distribution in the Bolivian part of the lake and the thermal stratification regime in Lake Titicaca, and some aspects of present-day sedimentation.
