This book includes articles presented at the Seventh International Conference on Copepoda, held in Curitiba, Brazil, during July 1999, under the sponsorship of the Federal University of Paraná and the World Association of Copepodologists. During the conference, 228 investigators from 37 countries discussed the current status of research in the vast field of copepod biology. As a follow-up, this volume is comprehensive in coverage, focusing on aspects of the ecology, biology, and systematics of copepods from marine, freshwater, and semiterrestrial environments. Those interested in aquatic and semiaquatic communities will find an up-to-date overview of present understanding of these nearly ubiquitous microcrustaceans. This book provides high-quality research material for graduate students and professional biologists interested in the aquatic sciences.
