Roughly species of freshwater sponges have been identified worldwide, says Anthony Schroeder, who is leading the genetic analysis of sponges collected during the study. In North America about 32 species have been identified, according to Schroeder, who anticipates genetic analysis could reveal new sponge species in Minnesota. Recent studies are showing that some fresh water sponges also exhibit recurrent occurrences in certain Atlantic coastal environments of South America. Following the synonymization of Spongilla wagneri Potts, in S. alba (POIRRIER, ), the distribution of S. alba was extended to the states of Rio de Janeiro (WELTNER, ) and.

Freshwater sponges account for less than 3 percent of the to species of modern sponges on earth, most of which are marine. Only 31 species of freshwater sponges are found in North America. Our study, so far, found two additional species of freshwater sponges in western Pennsylvania, Ephydatia muelleri (Fig. 1) and Ephydatia fluviatilis.

[Frank Smith; Illinois. Natural History Survey Division.]. In the preparation of this paper there have been two purposes in mind.
One of these is the presentation of the results of studies thus far made on the fresh-water sponges of Illinois ; and the other is to assemble in more convenient form the information which we now have concerning the distribution of such sponges in North by: 1.
Distribution and ecology of freshwater sponges in Connecticut There are fewer than 30 recognized species of fresh-water sponge in North America (Frost, ; Ricciardi but no comprehensive. However, the freshwater sponge species Ephydatia muelleri (Mueller’s freshwater sponge) has been observed since in Prince William Forest Park (PRWI) in South Fork Quantico Creek.
Mueller’s freshwater sponge (one of the most common sponges in North America) has also been found in abundance in shallow pools or light riffles in a second.
The phylum Porifera, which contains the sponges, is a highly successful group of metazoan animals that includes about 8, living species of marine and freshwater forms as well as some that inhabit brackish waters.
The majority are marine, but there are about species of freshwater sponges, including twenty-seven to thirty species found in North America north of Mexico. INTRODUCTION The distribution and taxonomy of freshwater sponges (Porifera:Spongillidae) in North America has not received widespread attention, although some notable works exist for regions surrounding the Great Lakes (PottsSmithOldJewellNeidhoeferEshlemanRicciardi and Reiswig ).
During a recent survey of the freshwater sponges of eastern Canada (from Ontario to Newfoundland), 15 species were recorded, representing approximately 50% of the total number of species known from North America.
Radiospongilla crateriformis, Spongilla aspinosa, and Trochospongilla horrida are reported from Canada for the first time. (Approximately species have been identified worldwide, with 32 of those in North America.) But more important is the contribution the faculty and student scientists are making to.
A survey of 28 Connecticut water bodies for spicular remainsoffreshwater sponges preserved in lacustrine sediments revealed14species representing 10 genera.
Sediments were examined atfivelevels (cacacacaca ≤ )todocument changes in species composition, distribution, andabundance.
Five species were recorded statewide in all fivegeologic regions:. The Field Guide to Freshwater Invertebrates of North America focuses on freshwater invertebrates that can be identified using at most an inexpensive magnifying glass.
This Guide will be useful for experienced nature enthusiasts, students doing aquatic field projects, and anglers looking for. An Ecological Study of the Fresh‐Water Sponges of Northeastern Wisconsin.

Minna Jewell conducted an extensive survey of the regional distribution of freshwater sponges in Northern Wisconsin, USA, during the 's, and examined factors that controlled the occurrence of. Sponges, which belong to the phylum Porifera meaning pore bearer, obtain food from the flow of water passing through them.
They grow in locations exposed to sunlight with protection from natural predators like caddisflies and crayfish. There have been about species of freshwater sponges identified worldwide and 32 of those are in North America.
Eshleman () studied the fresh-water sponges of northern Florida, His study is the only comprehensive distributional work on southern fresh-water sponges.
Since there are only a few scattered records from the Gulf States, a distributional study of Louisiana sponges would give a better understanding of the fresh-water sponges of the entire area.
There are distribution records for both freshwater sponges and sisyrids front northeastern parts of North America and other parts of New York dating back to the s Potts, ; Smith, ; Parfin and Gurney, ; Pupedis, ; Ricciardi and Reiswig, ; De Santo and Fell, ; Bowles, ).

Transactions of the American Microscopical Society Supplying fresh water to public agencies required about 39 billion kWh of electricity in This energy intensity increased by 39% beyond the values, mostly due to population growth and expansion of treatment facilities.
This trend will likely continue in the coming years. 3; Household appliances contribute greatly to the energy burden.
important to know distribution patterns of fresh-water sponges because of their instrumental value, i.e. ecosystem service role in filtering particulate and dissolved organic matter. Worldwide there are known freshwater sponge species with 59 occurring in the Palaearctic region*Lake Baikal alone supports ten species (Manconi and Pronzato ).
Their collective work could even lead to the discovery of new species of sponges. (Approximately species have been identified worldwide, with 32 of those in North America.) But more important is the contribution the faculty and student scientists are making to the DNA sequencing of freshwater sponges.
This is for the most part a highly condensed selection from the author's larger work. Producing a field guide for aquatic invertebrates is a daunting task as the diversity of freshwater invertebrates is far too great to be able to produce a guide with Reviews: The taxonomically problematic spongillid genus Corvomeyenia Weltner is analyzed.
A north-south evolutionary series composed of Corvomeyenia everetti (Mills), Corvomeyenia carolinensis sp. nov., and Corvomeyenia australis Bonetto & Ezcurra de Drago can be demonstrated. C.
carolinensis sp. nov. possesses spicular characteristics that indicate genetic variation from its congeners; in addition.
