"A wealth of wonderfully detailed anatomical drawings...A definitive volume and one of great value to students and specialists in this area." -NORTHEASTERN NATURALIST (2004) "Anyone with more than a passing interest in the form and function of the early life-history stages of marine invertebrates would find this book invaluable-it is excellent. ...There is quite simply no work available of comparable quality, scope and detail." Jon Havenhand, Flinders University of South Australia for JOURNAL OF EXPERIMENTAL MARINE BIOLOGY AND ECOLOGY (July 2002) "Recommended for colleges located in coastal regions and those offering cutting-edge courses in invertebrate zoology and marine biology." -A.J. Kohn, University of Washington, for CHOICE (JUNE 2002)From the Publisher:
The "Atlas of Marine Invertebrate Larvae" is the most comprehensive guide to larval form and anatomy ever produced. Each chapter provides a referenced overview of life cycles, reproduction, embryology, larval life, larval form and metamorphosis in a particular group of invertebrates. More than 1200 drawings and photographs illustrate the gross anatomy of all known types of marine larvae and provide a visual survey of the range of larval diversity within each phylum. Most of the plates, which include some color photographs and numerous scanning electron micrographs, are original. However, the book also assembles into one place many of the best larval photographs previously published in the scientific literature. More than 50 recognized authorities on larval development from throughout the world contributed chapters and illustrative material. It provides glossy photographs of all known types of marine invertebrate larvae in a single reference. It includes juvenile forms, paralarvae, etc. of several groups with direct development. It illustrates metamorphosis from larval to juvenile form for most groups. It provides brief synopses of life history biology, larval development, embryology, and metamorphosis. It provides key references to review articles and classic works.
