Aquatic Oligochaete Biology VIII: Proceedings of the 8th by Pilar Rodriguez,Piet Verdonschot

By Pilar Rodriguez,Piet Verdonschot

This ebook includes 26 contributions facing the biology of aquatic oligochaetes and covers a variety of subject matters together with taxonomy, morphology, ultrastructure, embryology, copy, feeding biology, ecotoxicity, group reports, and species distribution. Descriptions of recent taxa in tropical parts, together with Amazonian woodland soils, in addition to overviews at the biodiversity of aquatic oligochaetes in Australia and eu groundwaters, are offered. New morphological features in either marine and freshwater species are defined and interpreted. Laboratory stories give a contribution to the data of oligochaete feeding biology and copy. using aquatic oligochaetes in ecological hazard evaluation is analysed intimately, and standardised experimental designs for reviews on bioaccumulation and pollutant move by way of foodstuff are incorporated. eventually, a few papers current the results of oliogochaetes at the functionality of an activated sludge plant, and multivariate techniques to the spatial and/or temporal distribution and composition of oligochaete groups in lots of diverse components of the area, from the dimensions of a river to the dimensions of the microhabitat. The vast scope of this quantity is a mirrored image of contemporary rends, not just in oligochaete learn, but additionally regularly utilized organic studies.
