Short Communications


The analysis of genetic polymorphism of Epischura chankensis from Lake Khanka, one of the key species of zooplankton, identified traces of geographical subdivision in the past in the current single population, probably owing to the formation of isolated reservoirs in the lake valley during its regression.
