Summary:
Lake Baikal is the oldest, deepest and most voluminous lake on Earth, comprising one fifth of the World's unfrozen fresh water. It hosts the highest number of endemic animals recorded in any freshwater lake. Until recently it remained enigmatic why such a high diversity evolved in the isolated Lake Baikal. Focusing on the sponges (phylum Porifera) as an example, some answers are provided to fundamental questions on  Read more...

Abstract:

Analyzing the mysteriously diverse fauna of Lake Baikal, this text focuses on its sponges (phylum Porifera), and in doing so answers fundamental questions about how life in this remote lake evolved,  Read more...
