Definitions of diapause and of the three types of diapause (embryonal, larval and imaginal) as they apply to the Crustacea are given and the distribution of the types among different orders of crustaceans is discussed. A special role of diapause as a way to escape competition among ecologically similar species is noted and the significance of photoperiod responses as a pace-maker of the biorhythmical function of diapause for a wide range of species is demonstrated. A common unspecific… 

Physiological and molecular biological mechanisms underlying diapause in aquatic invertebrates

TLDR
The review considers the published data, as well as its own, which demonstrate the abundance and evolutionary conservation of the mechanism of diapause in invertebrates and the near discovery of the functional role of daf genes in hydrobionts is postulated.

New aspects in investigations of diapause and non-diapause dormancy types in insects and other arthropods

TLDR
The combination of post-diapause quiescence and diapause proper, revealed in many recent insects and acariform mites, may correspond to the initial ancestral state of dormancy in arthropods, representing a universal adaptation to both predictable and unpredictable environmental changes.

DIAPAUSE IN AQUATIC INVERTEBRATES: WHAT'S KNOWN AND WHAT'S NEXT IN RESEARCH AND MEDICAL APPLICATION?

TLDR
It is suggested that molecular genetic insights of diapause in invertebrates provide new ways of looking at carcinogenesis and tumour cells may have parallels in post-diapause embryonic cells.

Seasonal adaptations in the life cycles of mites and ticks: comparative and evolutionary aspects

TLDR
Primary adaptations enabling seasonal control of development in arthropods emerged most likely at the earliest steps of the origin of life on earth, and evolved thereafter from the ancestral devices within various taxa of animals according to their organization, manner of life, geographic distribution, and environmental heterogeneity.

Dormancy in freshwater zooplankton: Induction, termination and the importance of benthic-pelagic coupling

Abstract.For a short-lived organism, such as a freshwater zooplankter, the ways of coping with years of local recruitment failure are either to disperse between habitats and recolonise or to disperse

Photoperiod and temperature regulation of diapause egg production in Acartia bifilosa from Southampton Water

TLDR
The ultimate cause of the over-summering strategy of A. bifilosa is currently unknown, but the SfG assay indicated that at 10°C, S fG was twice that at 20 or 5°C so it may diapause to avoid the higher temperatures in summer, and so it has a better chance of survival.

Introduction to Dormancy in Aquatic Invertebrates: Mechanism of Induction and Termination, Hormonal and Molecular-Genetic Basis

TLDR
Temperature, food limitation, and some other stress factors as well are shown as driven by diapause induction in aquatic invertebrates.

Benthic resting eggs in the life cycles of calanoid copepods in the northern Baltic Sea

TLDR
These studies show that the oxygen conditions of the environment regulate the egg dormancy of A. bifi losa in the northern Baltic Sea and suggests that in shallow areas large fractions of the eggs may sink to the bottom prior to hatching.

Evolutionary conditioning of response to changes in ionic composition of water in hydrobionts: An example of freshwater zooplankton

TLDR
Representatives of paleolimnic crustacean families Daphniidae, Bosminidae, and Cycopidae as well rotifer species (Rotatoria) of freshwater origin are highly tolerant of changes in the ionic composition of water.

Resistance of dormant stages of planktonic invertebrates to adverse environmental conditions

TLDR
The literature on the longevity and resistance to environmental extremes of dormant stages of planktonic animals (i.e. cladocerans, copepods, ostracods, monogonont rotifers) and some other aquatic invertebrates are reviewed.

PARTIAL PHOTOPERIODIC CONTROL OF DIAPAUSE IN THREE POPULATIONS OF THE FRESHWATER COPEPOD DIAPTOMUS SANGUINEUS

TLDR
Populations of the freshwater calanoid copepod Diaptomus sanguineus inhabiting three Rhode Island ponds switch from making subitaneous (immediately hatching) to diapausing eggs on different dates, indicating that each population possesses a unique spectrum of sensitivity to photoperiod.

The Phenology of Diaptomus stagnalis (Copepoda: Calanoida): The Development and the Hatching of the Egg Stage

TLDR
Cole (1953) was the first to make the suggestion, based upon observations and "inconclusive" experiments on the copepodid stages of certain cyclopoid and harpacticoid copepods, that the "resting stage" in the Copepoda is analogous to diapause as found in the insects.

PHOTOPERIOD CONTROL OF WINTER DIAPAUSE IN THE FRESH-WATER CRUSTACEAN, DAPHNIA

TLDR
The initiation of sexual reproduction and duration of diapause in the resulting embryo was studied in a population of Daphnia pulex Leydig that restricts such to the autumn, and exposure to short days after birth may permit a large percentage of parthenogenic broods in which the necessary males are produced, thereby providing males in advance ofSexual reproduction in the population.

Worldwide distribution and ecology of Alonopsis (Cladocera: Chydoridae) with a description of Alonopsis americana sp. nov.†

TLDR
The North American population of Alonopsis elongata is described as a new species, A. americana, and parthenogenetically reproducing stocks from England and New England were raised in the labaratory, and subsequently induced to undergo gamogenesis.

Population differences in the timing of diapause: a test of hypotheses

SummaryThe reproductive phenology of the freshwater copepod Diaptomus sanguineus differs markedly between populations residing in two Rhode Island ponds. In a permanent pond the population switches

PHOTOPERIOD CONTROL OF DIAPAUSE IN DAPHNIA. II. INDUCTION OF WINTER DIAPAUSE IN THE ARCTIC

TLDR
Control of the sexual polymorphism leading to an embryonic diapause was studied in an arctic population of Daphnia middendorffiana, finding that control may be partially overridden in long days (constant light) by density of culture.

Reproduction in Laboratory Stocks of Pleuroxus (Chydoridae, Cladocera) Under the Influence of Photoperiod and Light Intensity

TLDR
Pleuroxus denticulatus stocks showed greater variation of gamogenetic response to photoperiod and geographic origin suggesting that local populations have evolved different reproductive patterns to meet the major environmental stresses of the region.

Calanoid copepod eggs in sea-bottom muds. IV. Effects of some environmental factors on the hatching of resting eggs

TLDR
Temperature and oxygen concentration were found to be important factors affecting hatching and Extremely low oxygen concentrations in the water completely inhibited hatching in all species of marine calanoid copepods.

Population differences in the timing of diapause: adaptation in a spatially heterogeneous environment

TLDR
Populations of D. sanguineus populations are adapted to the specific conditions of isolated ponds rather than to a broader geographical region containing several pond types, which is inappropriate for other, nearby ponds.

The induction of sexual reproduction in Daphnia magna: genetic differences between arctic and temperate populations

TLDR
The results indicate that variation exists at gene loci controlling sexual behaviour in local populations as well as between distant populations, and the significance of this variation is discussed in relation to the environmental heterogeneity encountered by D. magna over its extensive range.
