About this book

Language: English

Calanoid Copepods of the Arabian Sea Region is based on 965 mesozooplankton samples collected from 1992 until 1995 in the Northwestern Indian Ocean. This work illustrates 60 species of calanoid copepods found in the Arabian Sea and Gulf of Aden. For each species there is a short description, detailed original line drawings and photographs of females and males. Keys to species of the 15 genera are included in Calanoid Copepods of the Arabian Sea Region, and maps and diagrams illustrating horizontal and vertical occurrence of the described species in the investigated area are also provided. Descriptions of the samples that were analyzed, the overall fauna including a list of 256 calanoid species of 25 families that were found in the study area, and detailed methods that were employed contribute to this very useful work.

Calanoid Copepods of the Arabian Sea Region is an easy-to-use identification guide for practical taxonomic studies that brings together scattered knowledge of the copepod fauna of the region. Both advanced taxonomists and beginning students will find the book a valuable guide to calanoid copepods of the Arabian Sea region.
