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.Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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 ofExpand
An overview of the limnetic Cyclopidae (Crustacea, Copepoda) of the Philippines, with emphasis on Mesocyclops
Approximately 120 (sub)species of Cyclopidae have been reported from South and Southeast (SE) Asia, where the Philippine archipelago – with 16 (including two endemic) taxa – is one of the leastExpand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand

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. Expand
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. Expand
Copepods and fishes in the Brazilian Amazon
TLDR
The Amazon basin comprises the largest river ecosystem in the world with annual high and low water peaks and a constant temperature near 29°C, andCopepods have evolved adaptations for attachment and feeding, especially in the second antennae and endopods. Expand
Freshwater copepods of the genus OITHONA Baird,1843 from the amazonian region (Brazil)
Three cyclopoid copepods of the family Oithonidae are reported fsorn the freshwater Amazon region, 0. amazonica Burckhardt, 1912, 0. bjornbergae Ferrari d Bowman, 1980 and 0. bowmani sp. n. InExpand
Making waves: The repeated colonization of fresh water by copepod crustaceans
TLDR
This preliminary analysis supports a direct relationship between lineage diversity and time elapsed since colonization of fresh water, and indicates a succession of at least four major waves of colonization of inland continental waters. Expand
Historical biogeography and distribution of the freshwater cyclopine copepods (Copepoda, Cyclopoida, Cyclopinae) of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
TLDR
The highly dynamic geomorphology of the Yucatan Peninsula and the recent climatic changes in the Holocene define the YP as a peculiar subregion that harbours a diverse fauna of cyclopine copepods with a high endemism. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the genus Pseudectinosoma, and description of P. janineae sp. n. (Crustacea, Copepoda, Ectinosomatidae)
TLDR
The origin of the present‐day distribution of the genus Pseudectinosoma is reconstructed both from patterns of relationships among the species and from palaeogeographical data. Expand
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’. Expand

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