Twelve taxa belonging to the genus Brachionus recorded from Reconquista River, Argentina, are reported with descriptions and figures. Several taxa are new to Argentina, and three (B. moronensis nov. sp., B. postcurvatus nov. sp. and B. urceolaris reductispinis nov. subsp.) are new to science. Morphological variability in the species of Brachionus identified is discussed. Biogeographical information and a key to the recorded species are also given. 
Diversity and distribution of Brachionidae (Rotifera) in Thailand, with a key to the species
Two sites in the Northeast – Nong Changpeuak and Bueng Srithat – recorded the greatest richness with 15 taxa, whereas no brachionid rotifers were found in 31 sites, on average, the species richness was five taxa per sampling site.
Thirty-four new records and the diversity of the Rotifera in the Turkish part of the Tigris River watershed, with remarks on biogeographically interesting taxa

Studies on taxonomy distribution ecology and reproductive potential of rotifers from selected centres in Cochin Backwater System Kerala
The studies were conducted in nine stations with varying ecological characteristics along Cochin backwaters and adjoining canals and found that the distribution of rotifers is cosmopolitan and plays a pivotal role in the successful rearing of marine fish larvae.

It is suggested that the natural seasonal changes in temperature and food generate successive time windows, which may be capitalized by the different grazer species, resulting in predictable phenology of grazer populations.

Contributions to the knowledge of African rotifers: Rotifers from Mauritania (W.-Africa)
The number of Rotifer taxa known from Mauritania, is raised from 8 to 90 and the presence of Keratella testudo and Wolga spinifera is remarkable and is probably related to the unusual climatic conditions in the SW Sahara.
