Chapter 16.3 - Arthropoda: Ostracoda

In: Thorp and Covich's Freshwater Invertebrates (Fourth Edition), ed. by D. Christopher Rogers and James H. Thorp, pp. 725 - 760, Academic Press, Boston. (ISBN: 978-0-12-385024-9).

An updated taxonomic review of Ostracoda present in the Palaearctic is presented in this chapter. Dichotomous identification keys to the lowest justifiable taxonomic level based on the most recent literature are provided. These are coupled with the necessary material preparation methods, defined relevant morphological terms, and current limitations in our knowledge of the group. Additional information on the “Ecology and General Biology” of this group can be found in Volume I of this book series.
