This quantity is a set of papers about the biology of enormous branchiopod crustaceans: Anostraca, Conchostraca, and Notostraca. a few of the person papers have been first awarded on the 3rd foreign huge Branchiopod Symposium (ILBS-3) held on the college of San Diego, CA, united states, July 15-18, 1996. Contributions on extra subject matters from individuals on the symposium, and from colleagues unable to hitch us in San Diego, also are incorporated. moreover, there's a complement to the 1995 `Checklist of the Anostraca'.
The subject matter of the ILBS-3 used to be `understanding and protecting huge branchiopod diversity'. Researchers from all over the world awarded papers on a number of issues relating to conservation of huge branchiopods, with contributions starting from alpha-taxonomy and zoogeography to group constitution and reports of ecology and evolution. One very important factor constructed in lots of of the papers during this quantity is the necessity to boost our realizing of simple points of branchiopod biology through the global which will increase our efforts to preserve them. even though we have now made vital strides in knowing the biology of enormous branchiopods, we've, with few amazing exceptions, made little development in assuring the conservation in their variety. we are hoping this quantity will offer the reader with new principles, and generate enthusiasm for learn and public schooling efforts on behalf of branchiopod conservation.
