Intertidal marine isopods
Intertidal marine isopods Synopsis is the second edition of this iconic Synopsis, replacing Naylor (1972).
It is completely up to date. There are many new references and an updated species list. Also included is extensive additional information about each species.
These isopods crustaceans can be abundant between high tide and low tide on rocky shores. They include Ligia oceanica, the Sea Slater.
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. The editors aim to keep them as user friendly as possible. 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.
