About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Chinese

The New "Check List " systematically recorded the scientific names (in Latin and Chinese) including original designation, the main synonyms (in square brackets), and the geographical distributions in China seas and the world oceans of all species (totally 22629) of the Chinese marine life in 46 major phyla. The reference lierature and systematic index of all taxa are also provided. A total of 5118 more species (29.2%) were added to those (17511 species) recorded in 1994. It indicates that great success and progress of taxonomy and biodiversity studies have been achieved in this short period of 13 years. The increase of marine species in number and percentage was particularly high in the dominant groups of invertebrates such as the crustaceans and mollusks which amounted to 4320 and 3914 species, an increase of 50.0% and 53.1% respectively.
