Since the 2 prior rotifer symposia in Lunz and Gent have been hugely winning, it used to be thought of vital to proceed the culture each 3rd 12 months. therefore a 3rd rotifer symposium used to be held in Uppsala, Sweden, Aug. 30-Sept. four, 1982. initially of 1981 the 1st round was once mailed to the contributors of the former symposia, who in flip have been asked to signify names of different scientists to be invited. consequently many of us expressed curiosity, approximately 70 of whom ultimately participated within the symposium (not together with transitority viewers from nearby). The members represented 22 nations, in Europe, North the USA, Asia and Australia. As with the sooner symposia, a few matters have been chosen upfront, quite often in the course of discussions among Henri Dumont, Birger Pejler and Peter Starkweather once they met on the SIL congress in Kyoto 1980. a few extensive subject matters similar to 'Marine rotifers' have been coated for the 1st time, whereas different issues have been continuations, notwithstanding extra really good, of prior topics. hence it really is attention-grabbing to stick to, throughout the 3 symposium volumes, fresh improvement in the parts of feeding, inhabitants dynamics and ultrastructure. each one potential player (with the exception of the reviewers) used to be invited to provide one brief paper (alone or with collaborators), which led to greater than forty such contributions. hence, the week's time table grew to become very crowded, regrettably leaving no time for extra accomplished workshops and so on. besides the fact that, through the evenings normal discussions have been hung on the themes offered throughout the day.

It is likely that only a very small minority is distributed worldwide. Endemism is concentrated near both poles (Fig. I), with no endemism in the tropics and little in the sUbtropics Taxonomic case studies: Brachionus and Keratella Brachionus (Table 1) The number of described species has increased from 33 in Pejler (1977) to 46 (including the mesopsammal B. kasadensis Sudzuki from Japan). I have arranged the species by continents and subcontinents rather than by biogeographical realms because I want to establish possible links with continental drift later on.
