The Treatise on Zoology: The Crustacea volumes constitute the current standard reference to the biology and systematics of the Crustacea. Translated, updated and completed, the carcinological texts of the famous Traité de Zoologie are now available to a worldwide readership.
With this edition, the texts of the famous Traité de Zoologie now become available to a worldwide readership. Parts 1, 2, and 3A of volume VII, i.e., the Crustacea, were published in French in 1994, 1996, and 1999, respectively. The editor of the original French edition, the late J. Forest, acted as supervisory editor for the current series until his death in 2012. With J.C. von Vaupel Klein, now as editor and principal translator, and M. Charmantier and F.R. Schram as co-editors, this new version meets the current demands and expectations of the carcinological world.
All chapters have been carefully revised and adequately updated, either by the original authors or by newly attracted specialists. The series will comprise of 8 volumes (some of which will be split in fascicles of approx. 400 pp. each) and a 9th split volume on Decapoda, which was not part of the French edition.
Volumes 6 to 8 are not published yet.
