About this monograph Hypotrichida
The Monograph of the Hypotricha is the most detailed revision on this group since Kahl's (1932; Tierwelt Dtl., 25, 399-650) review. The treatise is published in the book series Monographiae Biologicae edited by H.J. Dumont and M.J.A. Werger and published by Springer. Four parts of the revision are already available and the fifth is in preparation. The species not reviewed in parts 1-5 will be treated in volume 6 (the project for part 6 was approved by the Austrian Science Fund FWF). Thus, the complete series will comprise six parts with more than 5000 pages and many thousands of figures. See also Poster (13 MB) and short power point at SIL-2013 in Budapest.
