Meijering, MPD (1988): Cladocera in ponds of the Varanger Peninsula. doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.762084,
Supplement to: Meijering, Meertinus P D (1988): Zur Verbreitung von Cladoceren in Tümpeln der Varanger-Halbinsel und anderer waldfreier Landschaften in verschiedenen geographischen Breiten. Polarforschung, 58(1), 13-24, hdl:10013/epic.29595.d001
Up to now 19 species of Cladocera have been found in ponds of the Varanger Peninsula (Eastern Finnmark, Norway), which are presented here. A comparison with other regions in the northern Holarctic shows, that the limits of distribution of Cladocera mainly run parallel to latitudes. Using the number of Cladocera-species as an indicator, certain regions seem to be either favoured or unfavoured with respect to the climate in inland-waters. The Varanger Peninsula can be reckoned as a favoured region.
