Abstract

Glacial relicts (mostly crustaceans) of the Baltic Sea and lakes of Northern Europe had invaded Northern Europe along a continental freshwater path. This path came from West-Siberian ice-dammed waters into which marine animals, the coming relicts or their ancestors, had been trapped when the ice sheet advanced southwards across Siberian coastal water and, by blocking rivers, gave rise to an enormous lake system. Crossing the Urals and migrating westwards along ice-dammed waters, the relicts invaded Northern Europe. In this invasion a freshwater crustacean of Baikalian origin also took part, thanks to its inclusion in the West-Siberian system of proglacial lakes.
