New Book: Atlas of Crustacean Larvae

JCU makes outstanding achievements in research and teaching in the fields of marine biology and also aquaculture (fish, oyster, prawn farming). Many undergraduate and postgraduate researchers are searching for biology, taxonomy, life cycle summaries of various water-life.

A new book  in the main collection Atlas of Crustacean Larvae at call number 595.3 ATL might be of interest. Full of overviews of various species of shrimps, lobsters, crabs, krill, barnacles and similar ocean friends. It has close up images, descriptions of the animal and diagrams of their life-cycle. This might be of use for background reading or for a variety of assessments and research purposes.

For those of who dabble in their interest of shelled aquatic water life, don't forget to try JCU's trial of the National Geographic Virtual Library online. You can even search for images.
