About this book

Language: Spanish

Annelida Polychaeta III is an update on the knowledge of the polychaete annelids of the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic Island's coasts.

The current volume includes a detailed study of the families Lacydoniidae, Sphaerodoridae, Amphinomidae, Euphrosinidae, Spintheriidae, Orbinidae, Paraonidae, Cossuridae, Opheliidae and Nerillidae composed by an in-depth taxonomic and bibliographic review that is used to prepare a general introduction on the family, summarizing the most relevant morphological, taxonomic and systematic features, as well as identification keys for genus and species. The reader will find a detailed description with the most relevant morphologic characters for each of the 103 species included in the volume, together with illustrations highlighting the most relevant anatomical features and a summary of what is known on their biology and geographical distribution.

With this study that follows the previous publication in the Fauna Ibérica series of the volumes 21 (San Martín, 2003) and 25 (Viéitez et al., 2004); the former dedicated to the family Syllidae and the later to the families Phyllodocidae, Hesionidae, Pilargidae, Nereididae, Nephtyidae, Paralacydoniidae, Chrysopetalidae and Pisionidae; we continue the review of the Aciculata clade (formerly known as Errant Polychaetes) and we begin the study of sedentary clade Scolecida.

Summary in Spanish:
Annelida Polychaeta III constituye una nueva puesta al día de los conocimientos sobre Anélidos Poliquetos en las costas de la península Ibérica e islas Baleares.

El presente volumen incluye un estudio detallado de las familias Lacydoniidae, Sphaerodoridae, Amphinomidae, Euphrosinidae, Spintheriidae, Orbinidae, Paraonidae, Cossuridae, Opheliidae y Nerillidae consistente en una revisión taxonómica y bibliográfica en profundidad de cada una de ellas que se concreta en la elaboración de una Introducción general a la familia, en la que se sintetizan los aspectos más relevantes de su anatomía, taxonomía y sistemática, así como la construcción de claves para la identificación de géneros y especies. Para cada una de las 103 especies incluidas en la presente obra se ofrece al lector una detallada descripción en la que se detallan aquellos aspectos morfológicos más sobresalientes, acompañada de la correspondiente iconografía en la que resaltan sus principales características anatómicas, así como finalmente una síntesis de lo conocido sobre su biología y distribución geográfica.

Con todo ello, tras la publicación previa dentro de la Serie Fauna Ibérica de los volúmenes 21 (San Martín, 2003) y 25 (Viéitez et al., 2004), el primero dedicado íntegramente a la familia Syllidae, y el segundo a las familias Phyllodocidae, Hesionidae, Pilargidae, Nereididae, Nephtyidae, Paralacydoniidae, Chrysopetalidae y Pisionidae, se continúa con la revisión del clado Aciculata (antiguos Poliquetos errantes) y se inicia el estudio de los sedentarios con el clado Scolecida.
