By Frederick R. Schram (auth.), José P. M. Paula, Augusto A. V. Flores, Charles H. J. M. Fransen (eds.)

Decapod crustaceans are a very vital animal team in numerous aquatic environments, comparable to freshwater, estuaries, and oceans. study in this workforce has elevated in the course of contemporary many years, and pertains to their financial and ecological significance. The papers integrated replicate present developments in decapod crustacean study, and current effects on a variety of particular learn fields, grouped into the foremost topics: a) Systematics, Phylogeny, and Biogeography, b) progress, Morphology, and improvement, c) Ecology and behavior, d) replica, and e) Fisheries and tradition.
The Colloquia Crustacea Decapoda Mediterranea are dedicated to decapod crustacean learn, and organised on a 3-year foundation through associations of the Mediterranean geographical sector. The scope of those conferences has gradually widened during the series of occasions, and shortly welcomes contributions from crustacean learn world-wide.

Example text

The recent literature on freshwater crabs includes a number of important monographic revisions of the faunas of the Neotropics, Africa and Asia (Rodriguez, 22 1982, 1992; Ng, 1988; Ng & Naiyanetr, 1993; Magalhaes & Tiirkay, 1996a,b,c; Cumberlidge, 1999). This dramatically improved database, together with the availability of techniques such as cladistics, have laid the foundations for much-needed phylogenetic and biogeographic analyses of the group. The worldwide distribution of freshwater crabs throughout the inland waters of the continents and islands of the tropics and subtropics means that these decapods hold great potential as indicators of past geological events.

Sharp, irregular teeth (2); line with a few sharp, curved teeth (3). Dorso-external surface of the pereiopod I merus: smooth (0); rugose or with carinae (I). 119.
