Sclerocypris dayae n.sp., S. dedeckkeri n.sp., S. dumonti n.sp., S. zelaznyi n.sp. and S. zelaznyi etoshensis n.ssp. are described from South — West Africa (Namibia). S. exserta makarikarensis n.ssp. originates from the endorheic pan system Makarikari in Botswana. S. woutersi n.sp. was described from Lake Albert where it is quite common. S. virungensis n.sp. is known from the Virunga National Park, south of Lake Edward (Zaire). The latter two species are closely related and from part of the… Expand
Description of the male of Sclerocypris tuberculata (Methuen, 1910) (Crustacea, Ostracoda, Megalocypridinae)
TLDR
The male of Sclerocypris tuberculata (Methuen), thus far unknown, is here described and it appears that this taxon belongs to a separate species group, together with S. zelaznyi and perhaps also S. sarsi. Expand
Distribution and community structure of Ostracoda (Crustacea) in shallow waterbodies of southern Kenya
TLDR
Canonical correspondence analysis on species–environment relationships indicated that littoral vegetation, altitude, surface water temperature and pH best explain the variation in ostracod communities. Expand
Superfamily Cypridoidea Baird 1845 (Suborder Cypridocopina Jones 1901)
In the systematic part of this book, three ostracod groups with freshwater representatives are included: Cytheroidea, Darwinuloidea, and Cypridoidea. Taxonomic keys to each systematic unit down toExpand

Inland salt waters of southern Africa
Inland salt lakes are widely distributed in southern Africa: they are particularly common in South Africa, but many occur in Namibia and Botswana. All are shallow, and most are ephemeral withExpand
Faunistics of ephemeral rock pools in southeastern Botswana
TLDR
The need for more intense and time-integrated studies of these ephemeral systems and especially the permanent residents with specific adaptations to the vagaries of their variable habitat is illustrated. Expand
A late Holocene palaeoenvironmental ‘snapshot’ of the Angamma Delta, Lake Megachad at the end of the African Humid Period
Abstract During the African Humid Period (AHP) there was a large increase in the area of lakes and wetlands. Lake Megachad, one of several huge lakes, underwent dramatic fluctuations during the AHPExpand

ON SCLEROCYPRIS PARDII N. SP. (CRUSTACEA OSTRACODA) FROM SOMALIA
TLDR
A bladder-like organ on the dorsal side of the head, between the antennula and the antenna, is named the Muller-organ in Sclerocypris pardii. Expand
Homology and functional morphology of the sexual dimorphism in the antenna of Sclerocypris Sars, 1924 (Crustacea, Ostracoda, Megalocypridinae)
TLDR
Relying on larval morphology, a homology between the patterns in the two sexes is deduced and a suitable nomenclature for the apomorphic male condition is proposed. Expand
