Annotated zoogeography of non-marine Tardigrada. Part II: South America

ŁUKASZ KACZMAREK, ŁUKASZ MICHALCZYK, SANDRA J. MCINNES

Abstract


This paper is the second monograph of nine that describes the global records of limno-terrestrial water bears (Tardigrada). Here, we provide a comprehensive list of non-marine tardigrades recorded from South America, providing an updated and revised taxonomy accompanied by geographic co-ordinates, habitat, and biogeographic comments. It is hoped this work will serve as a reference point and background for further zoogeographical and taxonomical studies.
