About this book

This book, a result of a decade of field studies, contains contributions from 47 internationally renowned scientists, covering morphology, biology and identification methods for each taxonomic group including details of 473 macrobenthic species. Lists of all species described for the region are provided as well as detailed instructions on the proper sampling and preservation techniques.

Introductory chapters to geology, geography, oceanography and ecology of the fjord region provide important background information.

Victor Ariel Gallardo (Vice-Chair of Census of Marine Life) about the book: "The quality of this book sets standards. Identifications have been made and chapters have been authored by a multinational team of highly reputed specialists from equally reputed institutions and most chapters have been written or co-authored by THE world specialist in the particular taxon of the region and have been proof read by at least one other specialist."
