This excellent book will surely be a major resource for research scientists and students for many years to come. (Malcolm Dando, The Biologist)
This excellent book will surely be a major resource for research scientists and students for many years to come. (Malcolm Dando CBiol FSB, The Biologist)
This volume is a wonderful compendium providing details and current insights about recent advances in our understanding of the crustacean nervous system. In addition to being a timely review for a broad spectrum of scientists and teachers, this publication will be an excellent resource for uninitiated novices as well as seasoned crustacean neurobiologists. It will become an indispensable resource in the scientific community. (Carl L. Thurman II, Quarterly Review of Biology)
This series forms a reference work in the truest sense, one that will be referred to frequently for many years to come. The whole series would be an excellent addition to a reference library; these individual volumes are essential for anyone involved in research on the neurobiology or physiology of crustaceans, or indeed, other invertebrates. (Adrian J. Wolstenholme, Invertebrate Neuroscience)
A clearly written, beautifully illustrated, and entirely comprehensive review of the nervous systems of crustaceans, this volume is sure to be THE classic source for the field for many years - likely decades - to come. It will be required reading for all who work on crustacean behavior and sensory biology. (Sonke Johnsen, Duke University)
This volume is a welcome compendium that provides the reader with important insights about the crustacean nervous system. It is satisfyingly rich in information and scholarship. It is exactly what one wants from a work of this kind and is a most welcome addition to the neuroscientist's bookshelf. (Nicholas Strausfeld, University of Arizona)
In these days of fragmented information overload, it is rare to find such a useful compendium focused on a group of animals important in forming the basis for our current understanding of neuroscience. The volume presents contributions from knowledgeable experts in the field offering the reader timely reviews of subjects ranging from sensation to motor patterns and behavior. (Thomas Finger, University of Colorado School of Medicine)
About the Author
Martin Thiel is a marine biologist with strong interests in animal behavior and natural history. During the past 20 years, he has conducted studies on crustacean behavior ranging from evolution of parental care behaviors to mating interactions and anti-predator behaviors. He is also interested in dispersal ecology and biogeography, and in promoting the participation of citizen scientists in marine research. Charles Derby is a Regents Professor of Neuroscience and Biology at Georgia State University who studies how animals use sensory information in solving life's challenges, such as finding high-quality food, identifying mates, and avoiding predators. His focus has been the chemical senses of decapod crustaceans, especially spiny lobsters, clawes lobsters, and brachyuran crabs.
