Details

Crustaceans are key organisms in aquatic ecosystems. Today crustaceans of Ponto-Caspian origin have become important faunal constituents in many European water bodies, including the Baltic Sea. In this book, Chapter One reviews the causes, consequences and prospects of Pont-Caspian crustaceans in the Baltic Sea. Chapter Two examines the physiological causes and ecological implications of extra and “intermediate” larval stages in decapod crustacean life. Chapter Three discusses a comparative study of liposoluble vitamin effects in decapod crustaceans. The final chapter is a commentary on the possible management and conservation strategies of crustaceans from temperate sandy beaches. (Imprint: Novinka)
