The author has created a work that is extremely useful for providing introductions to undergraduate students approaching ostracod research for the first time, or to postgraduates and academics wanting a quick summary of the taxonomy and distribution of specific ostracod taxa. ... the ostracod research community will cherish this first comprehensive book on freshwater ostracods of the world." (Steffen Mischke, Journal of Paleolimnology, Vol. 49, 2013)"This comprehensive monograph sums up the knowledge of the last 250 years focussing on 'Recent Freshwater Ostracoda of the world' ... . a long list of references (page 565 to 604) and an index will help experts to get to the point. ... this book with excellent line drawings, SEM-photos, figures and maps will be a standard work not only for 'pure' ostracodologists, but also for crustaceologists, evolutionists, ecologists and also for (micro)paleontologists."
