By Stefan Koenemann,Ronald Jenner

in comparison to different arthropods, crustaceans are characterised through an unheard of disparity of physique plans. frequently, the specialization of arthropod segments and appendages into designated physique areas has served as a handy foundation for better class; although, many relationships in the phylum Arthropoda nonetheless stay debatable.

Can Crustacea also be thought of a monophyletic team?
If so, then that are their closest family members in the Arthropoda?

The solutions to questions similar to those will play a key position in figuring out styles and procedures in arthropod evolution, together with the disappearance of definite physique plans from the fossil checklist, in addition to incidences of transition from aquatic to terrestrial environments.

Crustacea and Arthropod Relationships, written by means of a group of the world over famous specialists, provides a large choice of viewpoints, whereas delivering an up to date precis of contemporary development throughout numerous disciplines. With wealthy element and vibrancy, it addresses the evolution and phylogenetic relationships of the Arthropoda dependent upon molecular, developmental, morphological, and paleontological facts.

Volume sixteen is the 1st within the sequence not to be completely devoted to discussions particular to crustaceans. whereas it really is nonetheless crustaceo-centric, the concentration of this quantity has been prolonged to incorporate different teams of arthropods in addition to the Crustacea. This wider concentration bargains demanding possibilities to judge higher-level relationships in the Arthropoda from a carcinologic perspective.

This quantity is devoted to the profession of Frederick R. Schram, the founding editor of CrustaceanIssues in 1983, in attractiveness of his many stimulating and wide-ranging contributions to the evolutionary biology of arthropods often, and of crustaceans in particular.
