Global diversity of large branchiopods (Crustacea: Branchiopoda) in freshwater.
Multispecies coexistence of branchiopods (Anostraca, Notostraca & Spinicaudata) in temporary ponds of Chaouia plain (western Morocco): sympatry or syntopy between usually allopatric species.
The occurrence of large branchiopod crustaceans in perennial pans: a research note.
And I realized that this brain actually comprises three successive neuropils in the optic regions, which is a trait of malacostracans, not branchiopods
," he said.
The study authors argue that the fossil supports the belief that branchiopod
brains evolved from complex organisms into simpler ones.
research in the Neotropics is becoming increasingly sophisticated, with Mexico, Brazil and Venezuela taking the lead (e.
All the shrimp-like branchiopods
feed themselves by filtering algae and detritus out of the water.
Denton Belk graciously identified all the large branchiopod
specimens from my field work and provided guidance and technical information during the preparation of this work.
The new information generated by the upgraded analysis of cladocerans, which includes examination of all thoracic limbs and not only the general appearance of the valves and the postabdomen, has yielded evidence to weaken the idea of cosmopolitanism in anomopod branchiopods
(Frey 1980, 1988, Ciros & Elias-Gutierrez 1997).
Dodson (1987) lists five species of branchiopods
in rock pools in Utah, two species each of Anostraca and Conchostraca, and Triops longicaudatus.

Furthermore, although electron microscopic methods have been used to study the hearts of several branchiopods
- Daphnia (Stein et al.
