About this book

Language: Spanish with bilingual keys in English and Spanish

Fauna Ibérica, Volume 45: Annelida: Polychaeta V constitutes a new advance in the knowledge of the Polychaetous Annelids of the coasts of the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands. The current volume comprises a detailed study of the families Aberrantidae, Arenicolidae, Calamyzidae, Stauronereidae, Fauveliopsidae, Ichthyotomidae, Lumbrineridae, Maldanidae, Myzostomidae, Oenonidae, Parergodrilidae, as well as pelagic (and Typhloscolecidae) and meiofaunal families (Dinophilidae, Diurodrilidae, Polygordiidae, Protodrilidae, Protodriloididae and Saccocirridae), the exception being Nerillidae, that was already addressed in an earlier volume. To achieve this, an in-depth taxonomic and bibliographic review of each family is accomplished, presenting a general introduction, including the most relevant features on their taxonomy, anatomy and systematics, along with identification keys for genera and species. For each of the 158 species covered in this volume, the reader will find a detailed description, presenting their most diagnostic morphological characters, together with illustrations and a summary of the state-of-the-art on their biology and geographical distribution. This volume follows on the four previous books on Polychaetes in the Fauna Ibérica series: Volumes 21, 25, 36, and 41, thus almost finishing the review of the clade Aciculata, and continuing the study of the sedentary Polychaetes, ending the clade Scolecida and continuing the clade Canalipalpata.

Summary in Spanish:
Fauna Ibérica, Volume 45: Annelida: Polychaeta V 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 Aberrantidae, Arenicolidae, Calamyzidae, Stauronereidae, Fauveliopsidae, Ichthyotomidae, Lumbrineridae, Maldanidae, Myzostomidae, Oenonidae, Parergodrilidae, así como las diferentes familias pelágicas (Alciopidae, Iospilidae, Lopadorrhynchidae, Tomopteridae y Typhloscolecidae) y aquellas conocidas como propias de la meiofauna (Dinophilidae, Diurodrilidae, Polygordiidae, Protodrilidae, Protodriloididae y Saccocirridae), a excepción de Nerillidae, ya tratada en un volumen anterior. 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 la construcción de claves para la identificación tanto de géneros como de especies. Para cada una de las 158 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 dentro de la Serie Fauna Ibérica de los volúmenes 21, 25, 36, y 41 (Parapar et al. , 2015), se concluye casi en su totalidad la revisión del clado Aciculata y se avanza significativamente en el estudio de los llamados Poliquetos Sedentarios, finalizando el clado Scolecida y avanzando en el clado Canalipalpata.
