SPACE OF SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS: taxonomy, zoogeography, ecology, fauna of freeliving freshwater and marine Copepoda. 34 new species species, 7 genera, 1 subfamily are described. Common problems solved in virtue of Copepoda: Species and genera endemism formation in polyhaline and oligohaline (Ponto-Caspian faunistic complex) waters in South Russian Seas. Oligomerization of the limbs in Copepoda as a kind of orthogenetic evolution in animal kingdom. Inciting forces of induction and termination of diapause. Evolutionary formation of host-symbiont relations. Cryptic species: evidence from interbreeding studies. Sibling-species as the first stage in speciation in Copepoda.
