                  NOTES ON CLADOCERA.
                    Br EDWARD A. BIRGE, PH. D.
  During the past three years I have collected Cladocera at inter-
vals. The group has been little studied in this country, though
thoroughly worked up in Europe. I have found several new
forms, including one new genus, and now publish a synopsis of
-the- work hithert-o done- by me.
   I give only the more important references under the synonymy
   The works most useful for reference on this group are:
0. F. Miller, Zoologiae Danicaw Prodromus. 1776.
            Entomostraca. 1785.
Jurine, Hist. d. Monocles qui se trouvent aux environs de Geneve. 1820.

Weissman is now contributing some very valuable papers on structure and
         physiology to the Zeitschrift f-dr Wissenschaftliche Zoologie.
   In my notes, all the above papers are cited by the name of the
author, or, if necessary, by adding to his name a single word.
