The topics dealt with at the Cladoceran Symposium showed a large diversity. A high diversity is what characterises the world we study, consisting of many different habitats and a rich species set. This easily leads to anecdotal research which then prevents the building of a consistent and sophisticated body of knowledge. The contribution of cladoceran research to general ecological theory is limited as a look in textbooks reveals. Therefore, choices have to be made for future research and a few suggestions to this extent are shortly mentioned in this essay in consequence of the Symposium on Cladocera held in Postojna (Slovenia), August 1996. [KEYWORDS: Diel vertical migration; daphnia-hyalina; induction]
