Worldwide Bibliography of Aquatic and Semiaquatic Dryopoidea

This bibliography is an ongoing project to record the literature on aquatic and semiaquatic Dryopoidea (Families Dryopidae, Elmidae, Eulichadidae, Limnichidae, Psephenidae and Ptilodactylidae). It will never be complete in the sense that more is always being published. Also, there are many papers for which I have not located references, especially in the foreign literature. I suspect this bibliography is particularly deficient in citations from the Orient, Africa and the eastern Palearctic, from journals not indexed by citation services, and from the older literature.

Periodically I add more citations. Additionally, corrections are made when I discover them or someone points them out to me. Therefore, if you have previously received a copy of this bibliography it may be outdated. Please check the date at the bottom of the second page to determine the most current version.

Papers include herein are those that deal predominately with dryopoids. Those papers that include dryopoids only as part of a larger fauna are not included. There are a few exceptions here and there.

I am willing to provide the time to maintain this database but I need your help. In particular I ask you, my colleagues, to assist me by contributing in the following ways. (1) I would like each dryopoid specialist reading this to send me a bibliographic list containing full citations to all of the works that you have published. To my colleagues who publish in languages that do not use the Roman alphabet, it would greatly aid me if you could provide translations or transliterations of the citations in a European language that does use Roman characters (preferably English). (2) I would appreciate the opportunity to compare copies of manuscript bibliographies complied by other dryopoid workers. If you are able and willing to help out in this way, please send a copy of your bibliography. (3) I would also ask each of you to send me a reprint or photocopy of each of your new dryopoid papers soon after they are published. And it is hoped that users will report additions, corrections and typographic errors.

Many of the citations included herewith are from the "Literature Cited" sections of published papers. As we all know, there are often errors in these citations. Thus I may have replicated them. When I have the chance I check them against the actual paper or journals. But I often do not have access to foreign journals and reprints to do so. When I have found different citations I have used the more inclusive pagination. Thus if you make an interlibrary loan request you are more likely to get the whole paper. Other differences are noted. parenthetically after the citation. Missing parts of citations are noted with question marks.

Please feel free to use this in whatever way is useful to you, and to tell others about this bibliography.
