About this book

Aeglidae focuses on these unique crustaceans who are endemic to South America. The book is the first to summarize the diverse aspects of the Aeglidae, whose taxonomic features and phylogenetic relationships, evolutionary history and biogeographical background, biological characteristics, and current conservation awareness make them stand out among all other decapods. This will be an important reference not only for carcinologists working with this family of decapods, but also readers interested in the evolution, biogeography, taxonomy, phylogenetics, physiology, and reproductive ecology.

Key features:
- Addresses the morphology, taxonomy, and phylogenetics that characterize the Aegla and their relationship to other decapod taxa
- Provides in-depth treatment of the evolutionary history, biogeography, reproduction, developmental biology, and the life cycle of the Aeglidae
- Discusses their physiology, ecology and behavior, including physiological mechanisms associated with freshwater adaptation, population dynamics, trophic ecology, agonistic and non-agonistic behavior
- Covers the current conservation status of all known species of aeglids, major threats to them, the use of aeglids as flagships or umbrella species, and conservation action planning
- Edited by researchers with established international reputations in this field, including internationally distinguished leaders in this field

Media reviews

"This book is an edited collection of literature review articles that together summarize the status of scientific knowledge on this group [...] The ten chapters cover topics such as the evolutionary history and phylogeny of the group, its trophic ecology, reproductive and developmental biology, behavior, physiological ecology, and conservation biology. [...] Optional. Graduate students through faculty."
