Biodiversity of lacustrine Antarctic crustaceans: local and regional genetic diversity of copepods and cladocerans
Entry ID: ASAC_1200

Abstract: The aim of the study was to characterise the genetic biodiversity of populations of the copepod Paralabidocera antarctica and the cladoceran Daphniopsis studeri in the Australian Antarctic Territory. Sampling was finalised during November and December 2000.

Daphniopsis studeri were sampled from freshwater lakes in the Vestfold and Larsemann Hills, and from small ponds on Heard Island. ... View entire text
