About this book and series
This treatise comprises 4 volumes with about 500 pages each and describes in detail the morphology and ecology of about 300 species listed by SLADECEK et al. (1981) as indicators of water quality. The morphology is documented by 6,153 figures, 2,000 of them are orginal light micrographs of living and silver prepared specimens and original scanning electron micrographs. Moreover several species are redescribed in detail (e.g., Dileptus margaritifer, Trachelius ovum, Loxophyllum meleagris, Platynematum sociale). Volume IV contains an easy to use picture key (74 pages) for beginners and non-specialists to all taxa described in Vols. I (Cyrtophorida, Oligotrichida, Hypotrichia, Colpodea), II (Peritrichia, Heterotrichida, Odontostomatida), III Hymenostomata, Prostomatida, Nassulida), and IV (Gymnostomatea, Loxodes, Suctoria). We also reviewed the faunistic and ecologic literature distributed in many thousands small papers. This provides the saprobic evaluation of individual species with a more reliable basis and shows research needs. Vols. I and II, out of print since 1993, were reprinted. Thus the complete series is available! It can be ordered from the Wasserwirtschaftsamt Deggendorf, Postfach 2060, D-94460 Deggendorf, Germany. Price per Volume about 100 German Mark. Supported by the Oesterreichischen Fonds zur Foerderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung (Projekt P8924-Bio) and the Bayerisches Landesamt für Wasserwirtschaft.
