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

This quantity is a suite of papers about the biology of huge branchiopod crustaceans: Anostraca, Conchostraca, and Notostraca. some of the person papers have been first awarded on the 3rd overseas huge Branchiopod Symposium (ILBS-3) held on the collage of San Diego, CA, united states, July 15-18, 1996. Contributions on extra themes from members on the symposium, and from colleagues unable to hitch us in San Diego, also are incorporated. additionally, there's a complement to the 1995 `Checklist of the Anostraca'.
The topic of the ILBS-3 used to be `understanding and maintaining huge branchiopod diversity'. Researchers from world wide offered papers on quite a few issues regarding conservation of enormous branchiopods, with contributions starting from alpha-taxonomy and zoogeography to neighborhood constitution and reports of ecology and evolution. One vital factor constructed in lots of of the papers during this quantity is the necessity to enhance our knowing of simple elements of branchiopod biology through the international with the intention to increase our efforts to preserve them. even supposing now we have made very important strides in knowing the biology of enormous branchiopods, we now have, with few remarkable exceptions, made little growth in assuring the conservation in their range. we are hoping this quantity will offer the reader with new rules, and generate enthusiasm for examine and public schooling efforts on behalf of branchiopod conservation.
