By Pilar Rodriguez,Piet Verdonschot

This booklet includes 26 contributions facing the biology of aquatic oligochaetes and covers quite a lot of issues together with taxonomy, morphology, ultrastructure, embryology, copy, feeding biology, ecotoxicity, neighborhood experiences, and species distribution. Descriptions of latest taxa in tropical parts, together with Amazonian wooded area soils, in addition to overviews at the biodiversity of aquatic oligochaetes in Australia and eu groundwaters, are awarded. New morphological features in either marine and freshwater species are defined and interpreted. Laboratory experiences give a contribution to the information of oligochaete feeding biology and copy. using aquatic oligochaetes in ecological threat evaluation is analysed intimately, and standardised experimental designs for experiences on bioaccumulation and pollutant move by way of meals are integrated. ultimately, a couple of papers current the consequences of oliogochaetes at the functionality of an activated sludge plant, and multivariate ways to the spatial and/or temporal distribution and composition of oligochaete groups in lots of various parts of the realm, from the dimensions of a river to the dimensions of the microhabitat. The extensive scope of this quantity is a mirrored image of contemporary rends, not just in oligochaete learn, but in addition commonly utilized organic studies.
