About this book

This book is an introduction to the most important and most common taxa present in the plankton, and it allows the identification of numerous common species. This new edition is substantially thicker than the first (2006), with many more crustaceans, as well as trematodes, sipunculides, holothuria and enteropneusta. In accordance with the increased numbers of organisms of southern warm water origin in the North Sea many Mediterranean species have been added.

The book is excellently suited to be used in such university courses for students of zoology and marine biology as well as for their teachers, but it is certainly also a comprehensible guide for any amateur microscopist and interested layperson.
