By Rut Collado, Rüdiger M. Schmelz (auth.), Pilar Rodriguez, Piet F. M. Verdonschot (eds.)

This booklet comprises 26 contributions facing the biology of aquatic oligochaetes and covers quite a lot of themes together with taxonomy, morphology, ultrastructure, embryology, replica, feeding biology, ecotoxicity, group reviews, and species distribution. Descriptions of latest taxa in tropical components, together with Amazonian woodland soils, in addition to overviews at the biodiversity of aquatic oligochaetes in Australia and ecu groundwaters, are awarded. New morphological features in either marine and freshwater species are defined and interpreted. Laboratory reviews give a contribution to the information of oligochaete feeding biology and replica. using aquatic oligochaetes in ecological chance evaluate is analysed intimately, and standardised experimental designs for reviews on bioaccumulation and pollutant move via meals are integrated. 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 varied 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 in addition quite often utilized organic studies.

River connections with the known area of distribution have a complex history, and the collection sites have previously been associated with both eastern (Atlantic) and western (Pacific) drainages. g. , 2000) . Therefore, although S. limpida currently inhabits both sides of the Continental Divide, former river connections suggest that the species may be derived from a prior eastern fauna.

These four marine species differ particularly from G. cavealis by their heavily muscular atria.
