Abstract

The branchiopods found in inland aquatic habitats are a heterogeneous group of crustaceans. There are more than 2,000 described species, and new taxa are still being discovered. Included in this group are fairy shrimps (Anostraca), tadpole shrimps (Notostraca), smooth clam shrimps (Laevicaudata), spiny clam shrimps (Spinicaudata), tropical clam shrimps (Cyclestherida), (the so called "large branchiopods") and the various species of "water-fleas" (Cladocera). In this chapter, we review the similarities and differences among the groups in their morphology, physiology, reproduction, behavior and ecology. We also provide methods for field collections, sample preparation and culturing.
