Die Tierwelt der Nord- und Ostsee

    Article metrics


    WITH the fifteenth Lieferung (12 h 3) of this work the portion dealing with the fishes ends, the present part consisting of an appendix dealing chiefly with distribution. The fishes can now be obtained in a separate volume entitled “Die Fische der Nord-und Ostsee”. In Part 9a (Aculifera), Drs. N. F. Nierstrasz and H. H. Hoffmann give a good account of the Aplacophora and of the Chitons. In Part 11 f (Thalassobionta and thalassophile Myriapoda), Dr. Otto Schubart describes the maritime and sub-maritime Myriapods. There are a large number of the Aplacophora in this region, but although their anatomy is fairly well known, there is a lamentable gap in our knowledge of their development and life histories, the chief work on these having been done with species from elsewhere. The same may be said of the Placophora, although more is known of this group and the eggs of a few of our common forms have been seen. All the species are very clearly described and figured with details of the plates, so that identification should be easy, and the anatomy, biology, and distribution are fully discussed.
