Review:

"Impressive tome covering freshwater invertebrate phyla and their ecology, from protozoans to decapods. Each of the twenty-two chapters, prepared by noted specialists, contains a key to genera (family for insects) biology, ecology, bibliography, and other essentials. A glossary and taxonomic and subject indices are included. Pertinent reference for all student and professional benthologists."
