  • Diapause in Aquatic Invertebrates

    Diapause in Aquatic Invertebrates

    Dormancy is a suspension of the vital functions in an organism to overcome harsh environmental conditions, and sometimes can last for centuries. It is a widespread adaptation in many phyla, ranging from bacteria to vertebrates, and may exert a great influence on aquatic communities.Contributors to this new book are leaders in the field of diapause studies, and many authors were participants at a recent workshop on diapause in aquatic invertebra

  • Rotifera X

    Rotifera X

    This volume reflects the latest developments in the research of a global community of rotifer researchers, who came together at Illmitz, Austria in 2003. Contributions are manifold and span fields from phylogeny and evolution of the phylum Rotifera to practical aspects of aquaculture and ecotoxicology. Major issues include phylogeny and evolution, genetics and molecular ecology, new aspects of rotifer anatomy through the application of confocal ...

  • Artemia: Basic and Applied Biology

    Artemia: Basic and Applied Biology

    This volume provides an up-to-date coverage of an organism of major importance to basic biological research and aquacultural operations around the world. It is a unique contribution because each one of the chapters is a thorough review of the existing literature. Graduate students in a variety of disciplines, new researchers wanting or starting to use Artemia or other closely related organisms, and established investigators studying this ...

  • Rotifer Symposium VI

    Rotifer Symposium VI

    As in previous symposia, some current research topics were selected for review and eight invited papers were presented. For the first time a paper was presented on the historical aspects of Rotiferology, covering European research between 1680-1950. A special workshop session was devoted to a debate on a controversial topic: Rotifer Phylogeny. The workshop resulted in a very successful discussion and the integration of scattered evidence ...

  • Rotifera VII

    Rotifera VII

    The Proceedings of the Seventh International Rotifer Symposium, Rotifera VII, spans subjects from community ecology through biochemistry, from the most basic science through the most clearly applied technology. Some papers report exceptional progress in our knowledge of rotifer anatomy and biochemistry, as well as rotifer molecular biology, evolution and life histories. The book also contains an interesting article describing a hundred ...
