D. Christopher Rogers, R. Edward DeWalt, Vincent H. Resh

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


An updated taxonomic review of higher crustacean categories present in the Palaearctic is presented in this chapter. Dichotomous identification keys to the lowest justifiable taxonomic level based on the most recent literature are provided. These are coupled with the necessary material preparation methods, defined relevant morphological terms, and current limitations in our knowledge of the group. Additional information on the "Ecology and General Biology" of this group can be found in Volume I of this book series.
