This book highlights the latest advances in rotifer studies in various fields including aquaculture, ecology, gerontology and ecotoxicology. The genus Brachionus are an indispensable type of zooplankton, having served as an initial live food for marine larval rearing since the 1960s. Their mass culture techniques have been intensively studied, and some essential achievements have been made – regarding high density culture, employment of valuable dietary algae, automated culture systems, and effective production of resting eggs.  These have in turn supported stable and efficient aquatic seedling production for numerous important marine fish species including flounder, sea bream, and bluefin tuna.  Further, this group is considered to be a suitable model for studying various aspects in ecology.  A series of aquaculture and basic science studies have significantly advanced our understanding of the life history evolution. The studies in these two fields are closely

linked, and provide readers with comprehensive information on how rotifers are now being employed in biological investigations.

Leserkritik
“Since the introduction of the rotifer Brachionus plicatilis to marine-fish-fry production in Japan, significant advances have been made in the technologies aimed at blood selection, mass culture and preservation, and these have subsequently promoted international academic exchanges with the editors of this book: Part I covers advanced taxonomy and genetics; Part II discusses the principles of mass-culture methods and the use of newly discovered and native rotifers. Part III, then examines rotifers’ merits as model organisms in ecotoxicology.” (translated from Japanese, Prof. Akinori Hino, Nippon Suisan Gakkaishi, Vol. 84 (3))
