  • 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 Abstract
