The Monograph of the Hypotricha (Ciliophora, Spirotricha): Three of six volumes already available

Berger, Helmut, Consulting Engineering Office for Ecology, Salzburg

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 (MB) edited by Henri J. Dumont and published by Springer (www.springer.com). Three parts of the series are already available, namely, the Oxytrichidae (Berger 1999, MB 78), the Urostyloidea (Berger 2006, MB 85), and the Amphisiellidae and Trachelostylidae (Berger 2008, MB 88). The fourth volume (Kahliellidae, Orthoamphisiellidae, Keronopsidae) is in preparation and will be published in 2009. The species not reviewed in parts 1-4 will be treated in two further volumes. The penultimate part comprises, inter alia, the Uroleptidae, a group previously assigned to the Urostyloidea because of convergencies in the cirral pattern. Part 6 will contain, inter alia, a key to all taxa and addenda to the groups already revised in parts 1-5 so that the series is up-to-date when it is finished. The complete revision will comprise more than 600 species on about 5000 pages and many thousands of figures.
