About this book

The major goal of this revision of Part G is to provide a workable reference to identify Bryozoa above the species level. Introductory papers review some of the current biological concepts of the phylum. The taxonomy is based on the reexamination of critical specimens, a reevaluation and increase in the number of taxonomic characters, and reclassification where necessary. Taxonomic characters range from microscopic to colony-wide, requiring new illustration at different magnifications. Systematic descriptions pertaining to two orders, the Cystoporata and Cryptostomata, are included here. The remainder of the bryozoan orders will be covered in subsequent volumes.
