This important and extensive volume presents part of the Proceedings of the Fourth International Crustacean Congress held in Amsterdam in 1998. As the title implies, 'Crustaceans and the Biodiversity Crisis' was the general, underlying theme of all contributions at the congress. With the turn of the century, someone ought to 'assess the balance' of our natural environment and of the various branches of biology that study its rapidly declining diversity. From the five subthemes covered at the conference, those of (1) "Diversity in Time and Space" (including Systematics, Phylogeny, and Palaeontology), (2b) "Biogeography," (3c) "Larvae," and (4) "Physiology and Biochemistry" (including Molecular Biology and Genetics) are represented in this volume, along with a few contributions from other subthemes (e.g. (2a) "Invasive Crustacea," (3a) "Ecology," (3b) "Behaviour," and (5) "Fisheries and Aquaculture"). The book is primarily meant for scientists working at institutes involved in research on the group (Crustacea: marine, freshwater, or terrestrial) and/or the disciplines covered. Individual carcinologists working on one of the themes discussed in this volume, will find a wealth of interesting and timely contributions, as will other scientists working in marine or freshwater biology or in soil ecology.

About the author (1999)

Frederick R. Schram received his Ph.D. in Palaeontology at the University of Chicago in 1968. His major treatise comprises the comprehensive overview "The Crustacea" (1986). Currently he is Full Professor at the University of Amsterdam, he is active in many fields of crustacean research, including high-level phylogeny of the Animal Kingdom, of the Arthropoda, and of the Crustacea, as well in theoretical issues as, e.g., the question of homology in view of HOX-gene expression; he has been Editor-in-Chief of "Crustacean Issues" since 1981. J. Carel von Vaupel Klein received his Ph.D. in Systematic Zoology in 1984 at Leiden University on a thesis 'Towards a Monograph of "Euchirella"'. In addition to detailed alpha-taxonomic work on marine calanoid copepods he engages in theory, as witnessed by his publications, on e.g. "Phyletic Gradualism and Punctuated Equilibria." Currently he is an Associate Professor at Leiden University and has been Managing Editor of "Crustaceana" since 1985.
