Crustacean Science and Research


About the Series

The Crustacean Science and Research series publishes internationally significant contributions to the biology of Crustacea. The thematic focus of individual volumes includes particular aspects from various fields of research, such as molecular biology, comparative morphology, developmental biology, systematics, phylogenetics, natural history, evolution, palaeontology, zoogeography conservation biology, (eco-) physiology, ecology, extreme environments, behavioural biology, and fisheries and aquaculture.

The Biology of Squat Lobsters

The Biology of Squat Lobsters

1st Edition

Gary C.B. Poore, Shane T. Ahyong, Joanne Taylor
December 20, 2011

Squat lobsters of the superfamilies Chirostyloidea and Galatheoidea are highly visible crustaceans on seamounts, continental margins, shelf environments, hydrothermal vents and coral reefs. About 1000 species are known. They frequently feature in deep-sea images taken by submersibles and are caught...

Phylogeography and Population Genetics in Crustacea

Phylogeography and Population Genetics in Crustacea

1st Edition

Christoph Held, Stefan Koenemann, Christoph D. Schubart
December 13, 2011

Recently, technological progress and the rise of DNA barcoding efforts have led to a significant increase in the availability of molecular datasets on intraspecific variability. Carcinologists and other organismal biologists, who want to use molecular tools to investigate patterns on the scale of...

Decapod Crustacean Phylogenetics

Decapod Crustacean Phylogenetics

1st Edition

Joel W. Martin, Keith A. Crandall, Darryl L. Felder
June 16, 2009

Decapod crustaceans are of tremendous interest and importance evolutionarily, ecologically, and economically. There is no shortage of publications reflecting the wide variety of ideas and hypotheses concerning decapod phylogeny, but until recently, the world’s leading decapodologists had never...

The Biology and Fisheries of the Slipper Lobster

The Biology and Fisheries of the Slipper Lobster

1st Edition

Kari L. Lavalli, Ehud Spanier
January 24, 2007

Written by international experts, The Biology and Fisheries of the Slipper Lobster provides comprehensive coverage of the known biology, ecology, behavior, physiology, evolutionary history, and genetics of the numerous species in the family Scyllaridae. It covers fishing methods and regulations,...

Crustacea and Arthropod Relationships

Crustacea and Arthropod Relationships

1st Edition

Stefan Koenemann, Ronald Jenner
April 27, 2005

Compared to other arthropods, crustaceans are characterized by an unparalleled disparity of body plans. Traditionally, the specialization of arthropod segments and appendages into distinct body regions has served as a convenient basis for higher classification; however, many relationships within...

Evolutionary Developmental Biology of Crustacea

Evolutionary Developmental Biology of Crustacea

1st Edition

Gerhard Scholtz
June 01, 2003

Crustaceans, due to the great diversity of their body organization, segmentation patterns, tagmatization, limb types, larval forms, cleavage, and gastrulation modes, are highly desirable for the study of questions at the interface of evolution and development. Modern interest in evolutionary...

Isopod Systematics and Evolution

Isopod Systematics and Evolution

1st Edition

Richard C. Brusca
June 01, 2001

A look at isopod systematics and evolution, topics confronted include the influence of genetic and extrachromasomal factors on their population rate and a comparison of different species in different habitats....

The Biodiversity Crisis and Crustacea - Proceedings of the Fourth International Crustacean Congress

The Biodiversity Crisis and Crustacea - Proceedings of the Fourth International Crustacean Congress

1st Edition

J. Carel von Vaupel Klein
June 01, 2000

The papers in this volume have been grouped according to the main sub-themes of the congress and primarily deal with the biodiversity issues of invasive crustacea, ecology and behaviour and fisheries and aquaculture....

Crayfish in Europe as Alien Species

Crayfish in Europe as Alien Species

1st Edition

Francesca Gherardi, David M. Holdich
June 01, 1999

From the third international workshop on the subject (U. of Florence, 1997), come 18 papers reviewing the issue of alien crayfish decimating the relatively few native species in European freshwater environments. In a historical and taxonomic context, the initial paper explains why such homogenizatio...

New Frontiers in Barnacle Evolution

New Frontiers in Barnacle Evolution

1st Edition

Frederick R. Schram
June 01, 1995

This work provides a guide to current research in barnacle evolution. Topics covered include: chemical signals in barnacles; larval settlement; naupliar evidence for cirripede taxonomy and phylogeny; and South American patterns of barnacle distribution....

Terrestrial Isopod Biology

Terrestrial Isopod Biology

1st Edition

A.M. Alikhan
June 01, 1995

This text contains the papers of a meeting on American isopods, the only crustacean group with representatives in all terrestrial ecosystems ranging from the sea shore to the desert. Due to such adaptibility, this group can be seen as a model for the successful transition on land. The text deals...

History of Carcinology

History of Carcinology

1st Edition

Frank Truesdale
June 01, 1993

The papers in this volume take several forms, from strict chronologies to detailed historical analyses. Topics covered include: towards the history of pre-Linnean carcinology in Brazil; the beginning of Portugese carcinology; from Oviedo to Rathbun; the development of brachturan crab tascononry in...
