About this book

Language: Spanish

Fauna Ibérica, Volume 41: Annelida: Polychaeta IV advances knowledge of the polychaete annelids of the coast of the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands. This volume includes a detailed study of families Glyceridae, Goniadidae, Capitellidae plus the families Aphroditidae, Polynoidae, Acoetidae, Sigalionidae and Pholoidae, which correspond to the so-called "scaly worms" (superfamily Aphroditoidea). The book includes an in-depth taxonomic and literature review of each family, and provides an elaborate general introduction to each family, addressing the most relevant aspects of their taxonomy, anatomy and systematics. Also included are identification keys for the identification of both genera and species. For each of the 111 species listed in this book, the reader is offered a detailed description of the most relevant morphological aspects, accompanied by a iconography that highlights the main anatomical features, and finally, a synthesis of current knowledge on the biology and geographical distribution. After publication of three earlier polychaete volumes (21, 25 and 36), this volume concludes the revision of the subclade Aciculata (also known as Errantia), and starts the study of members of the "sedentary" polychaete subclade Scolecida.

Summary in Spanish:
Fauna Ibérica, Volume 41: Annelida: Polychaeta IV constituye un nuevo avance en el conocimiento de los anélidos poliquetos de las costas de la península ibérica e islas Baleares. El presente volumen incluye un estudio detallado de las familias Glyceridae, Goniadidae, Capitellidae, además de las familias Aphroditidae, Polynoidae, Acoetidae, Sigalionidae y Pholoidae, correspondientes a los llamados "gusanos escamosos" (superfamilia Aphroditoidea). Para ello se aborda una revisión taxonómica y bibliográfica en profundidad de cada una de ellas, que se concreta en la elaboración de una introducción general a cada familia, en la que se sintetizan los aspectos más relevantes de su taxonomía, anatomía y sistemática, así como en la construcción de claves para la identificación tanto de géneros como de especies. Para cada una de las 111 especies incluidas en la presente obra, se ofrece al lector una detallada descripción en la que se aportan aquellos aspectos morfológicos más relevantes, acompañada de la correspondiente iconografía en la que se resaltan sus principales características anatómicas, así como finalmente una síntesis del conocimiento actual sobre su biología y distribución geográfica. Con todo ello, tras la publicación previa dentro de la serie Fauna ibérica delos volúmenes 21, 25 y 36 prácticamente se concluye la revisión del clado Aciculata y se inicia el estudio de los llamados poliquetos "sedentarios" con miembros del clado Scolecida.
