About this book

Although there is no shortage of publications on decapod phylogeny, the world's leading decapodologists had never before assembled with the sole purpose of elucidating these relationships. These experts present methodological updates on the diversity and relationships and provide an overview of current understanding of the systematics within select major decapod assemblages.

... one can hope that this volume will encourage more researchers, both present (researchers of today) and future (today's masters and PhD students), to take up the challenge and begin to work in the wonderful world of Decapod Crustacea. I hope this book will find its way to most people with an interest in crustacea and phylogeny, including both researchers and students. --Matz S. Berggren, Senior Scientist, Institute of Marine Ecology, Gothenburg University, The Sven Love'n Centre for Marine Sciences, Kristineberg, Sweden, writing in Marine Biology Research, 2010; March This will be a major reference for scholars interested in phylogenetics, particularly Crustacea Decapoda. This volume of Crustacean Issues will -- like all its ancestors -- find a good place on the bookshelves of most carcinologists. -- Michel E. Hendrickx, Labatorio de Inverlefrrados Bentonicos, Sinaloa, Mexico
