  1. The Biology of Squat Lobsters

    Edited by Gary C.B. Poore, Shane T. Ahyong, Joanne Taylor

    Series: Crustacean Issues

    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...

  2. Phylogeography and Population Genetics in Crustacea

    Edited by Christoph Held, Stefan Koenemann, Christoph D. Schubart

    Series: Crustacean Issues

    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...

  3. Decapod Crustacean Phylogenetics

    Edited by Joel W. Martin, Keith A. Crandall, Darryl L. Felder

    Series: Crustacean Issues

    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...

  5. Crustacea and Arthropod Relationships

    Edited by Stefan Koenemann, Ronald Jenner

    Series: Crustacean Issues

    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...

  6. Evolutionary Developmental Biology of Crustacea

    Edited by Gerhard Scholtz

    Series: Crustacean Issues

    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...

    Edited by Richard C. Brusca

    Series: Crustacean Issues

    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....

  9. Crayfish in Europe as Alien Species

    Edited by Francesca Gherardi, David M. Holdich

    Series: Crustacean Issues

    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...
