Commensal and parasitic copepods
The Commensal and parasitic copepods associated with marine invertebrates Synopsis covers species known to live parasitically or commensally with marine invertebrates. The volume includes keys, species descriptions and host animals.
Since the First Edition of this Synopsis in 1993, significantly more information has become available. A number of new species, genera and even families have been described, so these have been included in the Second Edition. Illlustrations are now also next to the relevant text, to aid ease of use. Overall this is still the only pocket book covering all these animals.
Synopses of the British Fauna is a series of identification guides. Each volume in the series is a detailed account of a group of animals. They bridge the gap between standard field guides and more specialised monograph or treatise. Since 1993 the the Field Studies Council has published these guides on behalf of the Linnean Society.
These volumes are suitable for the lab or field. The editors aim to keep them as user friendly as possible, with technical terminology at a minimum and a glossary of terms. However the complexity of the subject matter makes the books more suitable for the more experienced practitioner.
