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.
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)
