Poorly understood, they're one of the such a lot quite a few invertebrates on the earth. so much crustaceans begin lifestyles as eggs and go through quite a few morphological stages sooner than adulthood. In Atlas of Crustacean Larvae, greater than forty five of the world's best crustacean researchers clarify and illustrate the sweetness and complexity of the numerous larval existence stages.
Revealing shapes which are resembling extraterrestrial beings from different worlds—often with strange ameliorations for a planktonic existence or for parasitization, together with (in a few instances) bulging eyes, huge, immense spines, and aids for flotation and swimming—the plentiful illustrations and pictures exhibit the element of every morphological degree and make allowance for fast comparisons. the range is instantly obvious within the illustrations: spikes that deter predators take place on a few larvae, whereas others endure particular specializations now not visible in other places, and nonetheless others seem as miniature types of the adults. Small alterations in anatomy are proven to be suited for the behaviors and survival mechanisms of every species.
Destined to develop into a key reference for experts and scholars and a precious e-book for somebody who needs to appreciate "the invertebrate spine of marine ecosystems," Atlas of Crustacean Larvae belongs at the shelf of each severe marine biologist.
