Studies on Large Branchiopod Biology and Conservation by M. L. Hamer, L. Brendonck (auth.), Marie A. Simovich, Clay

By M. L. Hamer, L. Brendonck (auth.), Marie A. Simovich, Clay Sassaman, Denton Belk (eds.)

This quantity is a suite of papers in regards to the biology of huge branchiopod crustaceans: Anostraca, Conchostraca, and Notostraca. some of the person papers have been first provided on the 3rd foreign huge Branchiopod Symposium (ILBS-3) held on the collage of San Diego, CA, united states, July 15-18, 1996. Contributions on extra subject matters from members on the symposium, and from colleagues unable to hitch us in San Diego, also are integrated. additionally, there's a complement to the 1995 `Checklist of the Anostraca'.
The subject of the ILBS-3 used to be `understanding and holding huge branchiopod diversity'. Researchers from all over the world awarded papers on numerous issues relating to conservation of enormous branchiopods, with contributions starting from alpha-taxonomy and zoogeography to group constitution and reports of ecology and evolution. One very important factor constructed in lots of of the papers during this quantity is the necessity to develop our figuring out of easy features of branchiopod biology in the course of the global which will increase our efforts to preserve them. even though we've made very important strides in realizing the biology of enormous branchiopods, we have now, with few impressive exceptions, made little development in assuring the conservation in their variety. we are hoping this quantity will offer the reader with new principles, and generate enthusiasm for learn and public schooling efforts on behalf of branchiopod conservation.

Here we describe the community structure, spatial distribution and seasonal dynamics of the species analyzed over the period 1991-1995. Table 1. Frequency (%) of ponds inhabited by different numbers of branchiopod species before and after April 15 and total for the year. No. 61 Table 2. Frequency (%) of ponds containing anos(racans, notostracans and conchostracans before and after April 15 and total for the year. Material and methods Material was collected from small ephemeral ponds in a pasture between the Zrenjanin - Kikinda road and an adjacent field, seven kilometers past the village of Melenci, on the northwest side of the road.

Numerous populations from the Velika Morava Valley also seem to belong to L. saetosa. Leptestheria dahalacensis found by Marincek (1961) could also be L. saetosa. This would explain the absence of Leptestheria dahalacensis since that time. Since L. saetosa was described much later (Marincek & Petrov, 1992a) and the original material of L. dahalacensis from Yugoslavia was not preserved, the status of the species cannot be checked. Discussion The habitats of large branchiopods in Yugoslavia are under increasing anthropogenic pressures as they are in the way of expanding agriculture.
