The section on Hirudinea was compiled by Dr. Donald J. Klemm, Research Aquatic Biologist, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, NERL, EERD, Ecosystems Research Branch (MS-642), 26 W. Martin Luther King Drive, Cincinnati, OH 45268-0001 USA; Phone: (513) 569-7090; FAX: (513) 569-7609; E-mail address: klemm.donald[AT]epa.gov

Researchers should send reprints of their papers to both Mark and Don to ensure that they are included accurately in future bibliographies. The reprints are greatly appreciated.

This bibliography was originally published (September 1997) by the North American Benthological Society in "Current and Selected Bibliographies on Benthic Biology - 1996."


Citations for aquatic Annelida will be split into the following groupings for the convenience of researchers: Acanthobdellae, Aphanoneura, Branchiobdellae, Oligochaeta, and Polychaeta. Those papers which list or discuss taxa from more than one of the above groups will be included in each of those groups below. Researchers should send reprints of their papers to me to ensure that they are included accurately in future bibliographies. Please report inaccuracies to me. Suggestions are welcomed. The present format reflects comments received from colleagues.

Most citations are followed by one or more numbers and letters in brackets [ ]. Numbers designate the taxonomic level of annelid identification: 1 = phylum, class, ordinal, or familial level of identification; 2 = generic or specific level of identification; 3 = new description, revision, redescription, or systematic work.

Letters indicate the following: A = Aphanoneura; Ac = Acanthobdellae; B = Branchiobdellae; bib = bibliography; C = cytology; D = description; E = ecology; F = faunistic, or distributional information; G = general; H = Hirudinea; K = key provided; M = methods, such as analysis, collection, or processing information; O = Oligochaeta; P = Polychaeta; Ph = physiology; R = revision; TMS = taxonomy, morphology, and / or systematics; X = toxicology; xO = interesting paper, but oligochaetes not discussed.

A number followed by a hyphen (-) and a letter indicates the level of identification for that letter group, e.g., [2-O] = species level of identification for Oligochaeta; [3-B] = new species, revision, or redescription of Branchiobdellae. Citations followed by an asterisk (*) were downloaded from one or more bibliographic databases but have not been verified for accuracy. Unless otherwise noted, all papers are written in English; many include one or more foreign language abstracts or summaries.

Areas of leech studies are both aquatic and terrestrial, and covered in the bibliography are bioassessment, ecology, embryology, environmental and industrial toxicology, medicine, morphology, parasitology, physiology, systematics, and taxonomy. The leech bibliography is intended to help keep students and biologists current with the leech literature. It is also provided to assist the user in selecting information from the literature to help in evaluating data collected during studies of water quality, and of the effects of toxic substances and other pollutants on the ecological integrity and health of indigenous communities of macroinvertebrates, including the leeches. Researchers should send reprints of their papers to Don and to Mark to ensure that they are included accurately in future bibliographies. The reprints are greatly appreciated.
