The zoogeographic distributions of the 2,814 species of copepods reported from freshwater are analysed. [] Key Result Faunal diversity is compared between zoogeographic regions: the Palaearctic region has more than double the species richness of the next most diverse region, the Neotropical. Historical factors affecting levels of diversity are identified. More than 90% of all freshwater copepods are endemic to a single-zoogeographic region and endemic genera occur in all regions except Antarctica.

The freshwater diaptomid copepod fauna (Crustacea: Copepoda: Diaptomidae) of the Western Ghats of Maharashtra with notes on distribution, species richness and ecology

TLDR
Hydroperiod, depth, electrical conductivity, altitude, mean annual temperature and latitude largely influenced the distribution of species in the study area, and co-occurrences of species were overall rare but more common in temporary habitats.

Diversity of the free-living marine and freshwater Copepoda (Crustacea) in Costa Rica: a review

TLDR
The known diversity of marine copepods of Costa Rica is still in development and represents up to 52.6% of the total marine microcrustaceans recorded in the country.

CHECKLIST OF PLANKTONIC COPEPODA FROM A COLOMBIAN COASTAL LAGOON WITH RECORD OF HALICYCLOPS EXIGUUS KIEFER

TLDR
One of them: Halicyclops exiguus Kiefer, 1934 is new to the Colombian copepod fauna; comparative morphological comments and illustrations of this species are also provided.

Historical biogeography of the neotropical Diaptomidae (Crustacea: Copepoda)

TLDR
The main patterns of endemism in neotropical freshwater diaptomid copepods are highly congruent with other freshwater taxa, suggesting a strong historical signal in determining the distribution of the family in the Neotropics.

Copepod Biodiversity in Japan: Recent Advances in Japanese Copepodology

TLDR
The two new species of Platycopioida found in Japan are the first record of this order from the Indo-Pacific, and molecular analyses have revealed the presence of cryptic/sibling species in a common species and of intraspecific variations.

Diversity and distribution of copepods (Class: Maxillopoda, Subclass: Copepoda) in groundwater habitats across South-East Asia

Copepods have successfully penetrated the groundwater realm through a series of morphological diversifications and adaptations. Research on this taxon has increased over the past decade because of

An overview of the limnetic Cyclopidae (Crustacea, Copepoda) of the Philippines, with emphasis on Mesocyclops

TLDR
Examination of the samples from 22 lakes in five islands revealed a novel species from lake Siloton, and the first records of Thermocyclops taihokuensis in the Philippines (Luzon), so far known from East and Central Asia.

Taxonomic, phylogenetic and ecological diversity of Niphargus (Amphipoda: Crustacea) in the Hölloch cave system (Switzerland)

TLDR
The Hölloch cave system was most likely independently colonized from North, West and South and that the pre-adapted ancestors occupied different ecological niches within the system, and three highly distinct species new to science are found.

An annotated checklist of freshwater Copepoda (Crustacea, Hexanauplia) from continental Ecuador and the Galapagos Archipelago

TLDR
Any attempt to analyze and generalize distributional patterns of copepods in Ecuador is premature due to the scarcity of available information, and evidently there is an urgent need for more extensive field collections.

Large-scale patterns in marine harpacticoid (Crustacea, Copepoda) diversity and distribution

TLDR
Overall, the results confirm and statistically validate the main features of marine harpacticoid biogeography, including bentho-pelagic forms are the most widely distributed, followed by phytal species, whereas benthic species, especially interstitial, have a more restricted distribution.

Distinctive Aspects of the Zooplankton of Large Lakes in Australasia, Antarctica and South America*

TLDR
Not only has the degree of species-level cosmopolitanism amongst zooplanktonic organisms been considerably overestimated, but differences between the different classical biogeographic regions occur at supra-specific levels as high as family or even suborder.

HIGH BIODIVERSITY IN HYPOGEAN WATERS AND ITS ENDANGERMENT – THE SITUATION IN SLOVENIA, THE DINARIC KARST, AND EUROPE

TLDR
The relatively high number of crustacean hypogean species is rendered possible mainly by (1) the absence of their insect competitors as well as (2) spatial partition due to the small distribution areas of most stygobionts.

Taxonomy, ecology and zoogeography of two East Antarctic freshwater calanoid copepod species: Boeckella poppei and Gladioferens antarcticus

TLDR
A recent review of Antarctic terrestrial and limnetic zooplankton suggested that neither of these species can be considered an East Antarctic endemic, with B. poppei being listed as a recent anthropogenic introduction and G. antarcticus a ‘marine interloper’.

TLDR
Large genetic divergences and reproductive isolation indicate that the morphologically conservative E. affinis constitutes a sibling species complex.
