Die Tierwelt der Nord- und Ostsee

    Article metrics


    DR. K. STEPHENSEN'S account of the Amphipoda takes an important place in this most useful work. Such a specialist in the subject of course understands how to treat it simply and yet fully, and those who use this monograph will find their work made easy for them in many ways. With this large group it is impossible to figure every species, but every genus is figured, and usually a part or parts of every species. These illustrations are clear and good, and one should be able to identify from them any species in the area. Useful keys are supplied beginning with the sub-orders and tribes, through families and genera, to species. More work than usual is involved in these keys, for in some cases the males and females are so different that they have to be specially separated.
