Copepods parasitic on fishes

The Copepods parasitic on fishes Synopsis covers 130 species of copepods known to parasitise fish. These are mainly from the poecilostomatoid and siphonostomatoid groups, but include one cyclopoid.

The volume includes keys, species descriptions and a list of host animals together with the names of the copepods known to be associated with them. To aid ease of use the illustrations have been placed next to the relevant text in this revision.

Synopses of the British Fauna is a series of identification guides. Each volume in the series provides a detailed account of a group of animals. They bridge the gap between standard field guides and the 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. Technical terminology is kept to a minimum and a glossary of terms provided. However the complexity of the subject matter makes the books more suitable for the more experienced practitioner.
