Chapter Summary

This section of the book Aquatic oligochaetes of the Netherlands and Belgium discusses the aquatic oligochaetes study area. The study area can be divided into four major types of hydrological units: North Sea, Waddenzee, IJsselmeer (Lake IJssel), and Large rivers: such as Meuse (Maas), Rhine (Rijn) and Scheldt (Schelde). The book deals with the (semi-)aquatic species of Oligochaeta s.l. occurring in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. All species occurring in all kinds of fresh- and brackish water or in coastal water bodies from this region are treated in the book. The book focuses on the fauna of both countries, but as the fauna of the German lowlands (Northern Germany) seems very similar to both other countries, notes have been made about the occurrence of the species in Germany.
