The freshwater fauna of the South Polar Region: A 140-year review

The metazoan fauna of Antarctic and sub-Antarctic freshwaters is reviewed. Almost 400 species, notably rotifers, tardigrades and crustaceans have been identified. Sponges, molluscs, amphibians,

Faunal Diversity in Antarctica: Contributions of Zoological Survey of India

Though some works have been done on taxonomic and ecological studies on different invertebrates groups by ZSI scientists, yet more studies are needed to explore the terrestrial and moss inhabiting invertebrate fauna from the continent.

A review of current Antarctic limno-terrestrial microfauna

The need for molecular markers to help understand the ‘true levels’ of diversity is emphasised and future directions for Antarctic biodiversity assessment and species discovery are suggested.



"Eudorylaimus" species (Nematoda: Dorylaimida) of continental Antarctica

Two new Eudorylaimus species living on Antarctic mainland are described and compared on the basis of paratype or freshly collected specimens, including E. quintus sp.

A new species of the genusEudorylaimus Andrássy, 1959 (Nematoda: Qudsianematidae) from East Antarctica

The present species has multinucleate intestinal cells, which have not been so far reported in Eudorylaimus, and it is possible that the multin nucleation of intestinal cells has been overlooked in the previously known species of the genus.

Dorylaimoidea From Some Subantarctic Islands

Nine new species of Dorylaimoidea are described, collected by Mr. W. Spaull on ten subantarctic islands, and resemble Rhyssocolpus, a genus whose validity is doubted.

A Rapid Method for the Transfer of Nematodes From Fixative To Anhydrous Glycerin

Eine Methode wird beschrieben bei der Nematoden innerhalb 24 Stunden von der Fixierungsflussigkeit in wasserfreies Glyzerin uberfuhrt werden, der Aethanol in diesem Gemisch wird durch Wasserentzug im Exsiccator mit AETHanol 96% konzentriert.
