Studies on Freshwater Entomostraca in Greenland VI. The Entomostraca of the Kap Farvel Area, Southernmost Greenland
21 pp., 39 figs., 3 tables, 65 DKK

Frestwater crustaceans of the groups Cladocera, Ostracoda and Copepoda were investigated in the Kap Farvel area, the southernmost part of Greenland. Collections were made at 158 freshwater localities, and 42 species were found. Maps of the distribution of the species in the area are given. On the basis of distribution, number of species and specimens per locality, and the water chemistry and temperature, a zoogeographical boundary is suggested between the eastern and western parts of the area.
