Book Description Smithsonian Books, Washington, DC, 1989. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. "Meiofauna constitute a remarkable assemblage of microscopic invertebrates living in both freshwater and marine sediments, from high altitude stream beds to the profundal ooze of the deep sea. Meiobenthology is a young science, born in the 1920s and christened in 1942 when the name meiofauna was given to the benthic fauna that passed through a 1-mm mesh sieve during the process of separating it from sediment.This book consists of fifty-four authoritative, extensively documented, and profusely illustrated essays on the study of meiofauna. It is a combination text, reference, and manual for the recognition of minute and often highly adapted representatives of twenty-two animal phyla. Benthic ecologists will discover new insights and information; the invertebrate zoologist will find the book extremely useful as a reference to lesser-known taxa; and those who labor at the separation and identification of microscopic animals from sediment samples will welcome the many illustrations of meiofaunal representatives. This book constitutes the most comprehensive compilation of scholarly information ever written on the subject of meiofauna." 488 pages with index. Book is in VERY GOOD condition.
