  • Gilbert Van Stappen
Chapter
Part of the Biology of Aquatic Organisms book series (BOAO, volume 1)

Abstract

Artemia is widely distributed on the five continents in many salt lakes, coastal lagoons, and solar saltworks’ — this, or a variation on the same theme, is the standard opening phrase in most scientific contributions related to brine shrimp zoogeography. This chapter is no exception to this rule.
