Shrimps, Prawns and Lobsters
This guide aims to introduce amateur naturalists, beachcombers, divers and others with an interest in the marine environment to shrimps prawns, lobsters and their close relatives.
Shrimps, prawns and lobsters are considered, with crabs, hermit crabs and squat lobsters to be the most evolutionary complex of the Crustacea. This is because the well developed carapace or shell defines the overall form of much of the body and because each pair of segmental limbs is specialised for different functions: feeding, walking, swimming and reproduction.
Species descriptions are accompanied by colour photographs, line drawings and illustrations for easy recognition. References to literature, a glossary, scientific and common name indexes are included.
