About this book

This volume provides a unique view into the remarkable story of how shrimps, crabs, and lobsters - and their many relatives - have been distributed around the world by human activity, and the profound implications of this global reorganization of biodiversity for marine conservation biology. It highlights not only the importance and impact of all prominent crustacean invasions in the world's oceans, but also the commercial exploitation of invasive crabs and shrimps.

Topics explored include the historical roots of man's impact on crustacean biogeography, the global dispersal of crabs, barnacle invasions, insights into the potential scale of tropical invasions, the history of the world's most widely cultured shrimp, the invasive history and management of red king crabs in Norway, Chinese mitten crabs in England, American blue crabs in Europe, and the evolutionary ecology of green crabs.
