Main Article Content
In addition to supplements to the last two preceding years the publications of the present year are shown:
almost one citation per day, which gives the average speed of publishing with regard to chironomids. The
compilation was achieved, as usual, from many sources: databases, tables of contents of journals,
references and citations of papers, inspection of many periodicals, lists and pdf's provided by authors
(thanks to you!). In particular, publisher issued search alerts proved to be rich in results. As a rule, only
printed titles are reported here with the occasional, but obviously increasing, exception of online-only
journals (PLoS or BioMed Central journals, e.g.). Titles announced "in press", even with available DOI
numbers, are not considered before printing. In general, online information should be retrieved elsewhere;
best check the chironomid home page for eventual references regularly, or use individual websites with a
host of chironomid-related data. Publications using chironomids as prey or food for animals are not
treated comprehensively; in particular, studies with frozen midge larvae only for use to feed experimental
animals are totally disregarded.
