Identification keys to twelve taxonomic groups of arctic invertebrates are made available in this illustrated volume. It is the first book of a series, translated from Russian to English, to provide the international science community with tools to identify species of Russian seas.
The outstanding taxonomic expertise is based on Russia's long history of arctic invertebrate taxonomy, and persistent exploration of the arctic seas over the past century. The book is published in cooperation with series editor B.I. Sirenko, Zoological Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Petersburg, as part of the Arctic Ocean Diversity project.
