About this book

Giant scavenging isopods, blind armoured shrimps, and a formidable assortment of galatheids: the present volume of 'Tropical Deep-Sea Benthos' contains this and a lot more. Unlike most other marine biological communities, the deep-sea benthic fauna of the tropics has long suffered from a lack of focussed attention from zoologists and oceanographers. In fact, the deep sea benthos of the tropical seas represents one of the last frontiers of marine biodiversity, and every new cruise on the slopes of South Pacific island groups reveals new taxa from all zoological groups.
