About this book

This text contains papers on the biology of aquatic oligochaetes and some related groups. They cover a wide range of topics including phylogeny, taxonomy, geographic distribution, freshwater and marine ecology, population dynamics, histology and ultrastructure, physiology and behaviour. The wide scope is in line with recent trends in annelid research with less emphasis on pollution studies and faunistics and a renewed interest in experimental biology using new techniques.


Preface. List of participants. Historical reviews. Taxonomy and geographic distribution. Systematics and evolution. Distribution, abundance and habitats. Population dynamics. Histology and ultrastructure. Development, physiology and behaviour. Pollution studies. Progress Report.
