No other book condenses so comprehensively our present understanding of the biology of polychaetes. After an introduction outlining the history of polychaete study, the text discusses the methods of polychaete collection and how best to preserve them. This is followed by an overview of polychasete anatomy with relevant terminology, and a discussion of polychaete systematics, fossils, and ideas about the phylogeny of the group. The remainder of the text is comprised of 72 taxonomic chapters that provide unprecedented coverage of polychaete diversity. Lavishly illustrated with drawing, scanning electron micrographs and color plates.
