About this book

Annelids offer a diversity of experimentally accessible features making them a rich experimental subject across the biological sciences, including evolutionary development, neurosciences and stem cell research.

This volume introduces the Annelids and their utility in evolutionary developmental biology, neurobiology, and environmental/ecological studies, including extreme environments. The book demonstrates the variety of fields in which Annelids are already proving to be a useful experimental system. It is invaluable to researchers, as it is the only book describing the utility of Annelids as a research model.

In all, this guide will have a useful place on the shelf of professional botanists, school teachers, and interested amateurs whose botanical range includes urban landscapes. (The Quarterly Review of Biology, 1 December 2010)
