The influence of Bernard Dussart's contributions to limnology in general as well as to freshwater copepodology in particular can hardly be overestimated. From 1945 until his decease late 2008, he has devoted more than 60 years of his life to studying freshwater bodies and their inhabitants. Next to his 200+ scientific papers, his frequent travels brought him all over the world, where he invariably left an inheritage of enhanced interest in problems of freshwater biology and management. The contributions in this book show the progress of research on the Copepoda found in continental waters and in part continue along the lines B. Dussart has set out: a worthy tribute to one of the very nestors of copepodology of fresh waters.
Danielle Defaye, Ph.D. (1984) in Animal Biology and Physiology, Université of Bordeaux I, has been appointed as Associate Professor at the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris since 1999. She has published extensively on the taxonomy of freshwater Copepoda, including the World Directories of Copepoda of Inland Waters, I, II, III (with B.H. Dussart).
