Publications

Dear visitors,

This section is dedicated to showcasing the contributions to the field of Copepoda research within Türkiye. Here, we present a curated collection of publications that are directly associated with the specimens cataloged in the Turkish Copepoda Research Collection (TCRC). It’s important to note that the publications listed here do not encompass all Copepod research conducted in Türkiye; instead, they focus on the work related to the specimens within the TCRC.

Each publication entry in our collection offers a detailed citation, ensuring that researchers and enthusiasts can easily reference the work. More than just a citation, each entry provides a comprehensive overview of the Copepod species studied in the publication. This includes, but is not limited to, new records, original descriptions, redescriptions, and any taxonomic or faunistic analyses undertaken. Our aim is to offer a clear and detailed insight into the specific contributions each publication has made to the understanding and documentation of Copepod diversity in Türkiye.

We believe that the Turkish Copepoda Research Collection will be a vital resource for researchers in the field of taxonomy and faunistics. By cataloging specimens and linking them to their respective publications, the TCRC serves as a bridge between fieldwork and academic study. It enables scientists and scholars to trace the research history of specific species, understand their distribution, and appreciate the depth of taxonomic work carried out in Türkiye.

Thank you for visiting our Publications section. We hope it serves as a valuable resource for your research and interests in the field of Copepoda.
