About this book

Language: English

Crayfish are important as part of our natural heritage and represent key elements in freshwater ecosystems. Their conservation favours the protection of the aquatic environment and water resources and they have a cultural and economic value in Europe.

The first part of this atlas deals with systematics and phylogeny, followed by a general description of habitats and threats in the second part. The third part describes current knowledge of the five indigenous species, seven non-indigenous species and three recently discovered non-indigenous species. The fourth part deals with diseases, and the fifth part describes conservation and management, including education and legislation. The final part is intended to generate awareness of indigenous stocks.

Also included are a glossary, a bibliography, and a species identification key.
