Authors: Ertunç GÜNDÜZ

Abstract: This study represents the first comprehensive list of the cladoceran species living in inland waters in Türkiye. A lot of these species, which represented in this paper, have been collected from various inland water systems (e.g. lake, pool, pond, lagoon, wetland, spring, salin lake etc.) by us between 1983-1995. The rest of them have been recorded by the other researchers. As a result, a total of 80 cladoceran species living in Türkiye have been recorded.
