Life-history traits display strong associations to genome size in annelids

Unexpectedly, genome sizes assessed here by flow cytometry in four Ophryotrocha species were three times larger than previously reported values obtained using Feulgen densitometry, which has implications for the hypothesis that harsh interstitial habitats select for small genomes in meiofaunal annelids.

Global panorama of studies about freshwater oligochaetes: main trends and gaps

Freshwater oligochaetes have been studied over the years in a wide range of habitats around the world. To analyse the data published about freshwater oligochaetes in the 31 year period between 1985

Bathymetric distribution of aquatic Oligochaeta in Lake Kizaki, Central Japan

It is suggested that a decrease in dissolved oxygen concentration of bottom water was due to an increase in organic matter content of the sediment, and T. tubifex could expand their habitats in the profundal zone.

Profundal oligochaete faunas (Annelida, Clitellata) in Japanese lakes

Thirty-eight species of oligochaetes belonging to five families were recorded from profundal bottoms of 50 freshwater lakes on Japanese islands, and the composition of fauna is basically explained by the scheme of Timm (2012), with parallel replacement of European species.

A long-term eutrophication process observed from the changes in the horizontal distribution of profundal oligochaete fauna in mesotrophic-eutrophic Lake Kawaguchi, Japan

In recent years, the total number of oligochaetes has shown a tendency to increase, compared with the past record from the 1970s, suggesting that eutrophication is an ongoing process.

Disappearance of deep profundal zoobenthos in Lake Ikeda, southern Kyushu, Japan, with relation to recent environmental changes in the lake

A benthological survey in a deep caldera, Lake Ikeda, southern Kyushu, Japan, in 1998 revealed that no zoobenthos were found in the deep profundal, although two tubificid oligochaetes, Tubifex

Studies on the aquatic oligochaete fauna in Lake Biwa, central Japan. II. Records and taxonomic remarks of nine species

At least 41 taxa of aquatic oligochaetes including five new records have been recorded from the ancient Lake Biwa in Japan. The lake is characterized by eurybathyal occurrence of Branchiura sowerbyi.

Nine New Naididae (Oligochaeta) Species for Sakarya River, Turkey

The material was collected between September 1995 and August 1998 from 79 stations on Sakarya River. A total of nine Naididae species (Ophidonais serpentina (Muller, 1773), Stylaria lacustris

Studies on the Aquatic Oligochaete Fauna in Lake Biwa, Central Japan I. Checklist with Taxonomic Remarks.

The present list covers 58% of Japanese oligochaete species so far reported, and an infraspecific variant form of Branchiura sowerbyi which is devoid of gill filaments and was previously regarded as a dependent species, Kawamuria japonica, is endemic to Lake Biwa.

Distribution and Population Dynamics of Chironomidae (Diptera) in Lake Yunoko, Japan

Fauna and seasonal change of larval populations of Chironomidae were investigated in the eutrophic Lake Yunoko from May 1988 to June 1989. A total of 1,213 adults belonging to 16 species were
