Investigations on The Eskisehir and Its Surroundings Amphipoda Fauna

Authors:

Abstract and Figures

The Anatolian peninsula, which has a continental character with its unique characteristics, is home to a great variety of species. However, due to lack of sufficient researchers and resource constraints, a complete research has not been realized. Taking into consideration the previous studies in our region, it is thought that we will carry out future studies for our region in the direction of the findings obtained as a result of this study. As a result of the diagnoses made, 1 family and 4 species belonging to Amphipoda group were determined.

To determine the Amphipoda (Crustacea) fauna of the inland waters of Western Anatolia, Marmara and the Turkish Thrace Region, field studies were conducted between May 2014 and March 2019. Seven field studies were conducted. Samplings were conducted at 291 localities and amphipod specimens were found at 127 of them. As a result, 11 amphipod species (Echinogammarus stocki G. Karaman, 1970, Gammarus aequicauda (G. Karaman, 1970), Gammarus anatoliensis Schellenberg, 1937, Gammarus arduus G. Karaman, 1975, Gammarus balcanicus Schäferna, 1923, Gammarus dorsosetosus Mateus & Mateus, 1990, Gammarus gonensis Özbek, 2016, Gammarus komareki Schäferna, 1923, Gammarus lacustris G.O. Sars, 1863, Gammarus pulex pulex (Linnaeus, 1758), Gammarus uludagi G.S. Karaman, 1975) were determined. The new records can be listed as: E. stocki for Ekinanbarı, G. anatoliensis for Uşak, G. arduus for Bolu and Düzce, G. balcanicus for Kocaeli and Sakarya, G. dorsosetosus for Bolu, G. gonensis for Istanbul and Manisa, G. komareki for Düzce and Kocaeli, G. lacustris for Istanbul, G. pulex pulex for Bolu, Kırklareli, Kocaeli, Sakarya and Uşak, and G. uludagi for Aydın, Bilecik, Sakarya and Yalova provinces. The observed morphological features and the detailed drawings of the determined taxa are presented. Additionally, a map showing the distribution of the obtained species is also given.

The genus Gammarus Fabricius, 1775 is represented in Turkey by 38 species. Only four of them occur in marine or brackish habitats and the remaining species are pure freshwater species. Some of them adopted to living in extreme habitats, such as wells, cave waters etc. An updated list of Gammarus taxa reported from Turkey is presented in addition to some supplementary records.

A new amphipod species, Dikerogammarus istanbulensis sp. nov., is described. Specimens were collected from a reservoir, near Silivri district, İstanbul province, Turkey. The new species is similar to Dikerogammarus bispinosus Martynov, 1925 except for the presence of setae on inner surface of basal segment of pereopod 7 in both sexes and absence of long setae on the ventral side of second peduncle segment of antenna 1. In addition, epimeral plate 2 has many setae along the ventral margin in both sexes. A detailed morphological description and illustrations of the new species are given. Differences between the new species and related species are discussed. An identification key for the genus Dikerogammarus is presented.

A new species of freshwater amphipod, Gammarus obruki sp. nov., collected from İnderesi Cave, Bartın Province, Turkey, is described and illustrated. Th e new species belongs to the Gammarus pulex group. Th e most discriminant characters of this species are the presence of prolonged extremities, a very long antenna 1 (up to 52 segmented fl agellum), densely setose fi ft h peduncle and fl agellar segments of antenna 2, and a fourth peduncle segment that has no long setae. A detailed morphological description and illustrations of the new species are provided and diff erences from related species are discussed.

A new blind species of freshwater amphipod, Gammarus kesanensis sp. nov., collected from Erikli Fountain, Keşan, Turkey, is described and illustrated. The new species belongs to Gammarus pulex- group and is the fourth blind species of the group reported from Europe and Turkey. A detailed morphological description and illustrations of the new species are given and differences from related species are discussed. In addition, a key to the blind/eyeless species of Gammarus genus of Europe is presented.

A new species of the amphipod crustacean, Palaeogammarus polonicus sp. nov., is established upon one specimen embedded in a piece of Eocene Baltic amber. The new species is compared with four formerly described amphipods from Baltic amber, all belonging to the genus Palaeogammarus ZADDACH, 1864 (Crangonyctidae).

This third part of the revision of the freshwater Gammarus species deals with the G. balcanicus - group. Members of this artificial group are characterized by poorly setose pereiopods 3 and 4 and uropod 3 and by the absence of dorsal carinae (processes) on the metasome segments.

First some special biological features of crustaceans are described, including morphology and anat-omy (segmentation, extremities, cuticle), respiration, circulation, excretion and osmotic regulation, reproduction and life history strategies (precopula, breeding, larvae, moulting), distribution and abundance, and modes of life (living in the benthos or plankton). This section is followed by a de-tailed review of results at different methodological levels, particularly focussing on freshwater am-phipods, isopods and Cladocerans (e.g. as components of lake zooplankton). One basis for an eco-logical assessment is knowledge of ecological preferences and distribution of crustaceans under dif-ferent environmental conditions. Although information on the abundance of species is essential, the relevance of reproduction and population dynamics is emphasised. Subsequently, the development of biotic indices (including the Gammarus/Asellus ratio or the saprobic index involving crustaceans) is discussed. To understand ecological effects of aquatic pollution, information on bioaccumulation of substances is crucial. The applicability of feeding, growth, behaviour (e.g. precopula) and drift as meaningful ecological indicators (or biomarkers) is then discussed at length. Finally, information from field studies on survival and reproduction is presented, regarding aqueous-phase toxicity, sediment toxicity and response and recovery of lake zooplankton communities exposed to acidifi-cation and metals. Some details are illustrated in a case study focussing on accumulation strategies, toxicokinetic models and detoxification mechanisms in gammarid amphipods.

A new species of freshwater Amphipod, Gammarus katagani sp. n., collected from Domaniç in Kütahya province, Turkey, is described and illustrated. The new species belongs to the Gammarus balcanicus-group. The presence of an additional row of setae on the last two meta-some segments in both sexes is the most diagnostic character for the species. A detailed morphological description and illustrations of the new species are given and differences from related species are discussed.
