The third volume of Sars's comprehensive Account of the Crustacea of Norway, Cumacea covered all known Norwegian Cumaceans at the time of publication (1900). 72 plates provide detailed illustrations of all the species; each species description includes male and female characteristics, Norwegian occurrence and world distribution.
Out of print and very scarce for many years, Cumacea is now available on CD-ROM, for Windows PCs and Macs, from Pisces Conservation. The plates, figures and text are reproduced exactly from the original, with the added bonus of being fully cross-referenced and searchable for ease of navigation.
The quality of reproduction of all the illustrations is excellent, allowing accurate and precise identification. The book is in Adobe Acrobat PDF format (with free Reader software supplied), allowing text and images to be printed at high resolution. In addition, high-resolution scans of all 72 plates are included separately on the CD-ROM.
