From the Back Cover:

The vast majority of marine invertebrates produce larvae that differ dramatically in form, size, lifestyle and habitat from adults of thier respective species. Often bizarre in form and splendid in color, invertebrate larvae have captured the imagination of students, researchers and even poets for many generations.
