Evolution and Biogeography: Volume 8

Martin Thiel and Gary Poore


This volume examines Evolution and Biogeography of Crustacea, one of the dominant groups of animals, especially in aquatic environments. The first part of this volume is dedicated to the explanation of the origins and successful establishment of the Crustacea in the oceans. In the second part the biogeography of the Crustacea is explored in order to infer how they conquered different biomes globally, while adapting to a wide range of aquatic and terrestrial conditions. A final section examines more general patterns and processes, and looks to the future. Collectively, these eighteen chapters p ... More

Keywords: Crustacean origins, crustacean evolution, crustacean biogeography, crustacean radiation, crustacean colonization, habitat colonization, invasive crustaceans, marine crustaceans, freshwater crustaceans, terrestrial crustaceans
