By Stefan Koenemann, Ronald Jenner

In comparison to different arthropods, crustaceans are characterised by way of an remarkable disparity of physique plans. routinely, the specialization of arthropod segments and appendages into exact physique areas has served as a handy foundation for greater class; even though, many relationships in the phylum Arthropoda nonetheless stay arguable. Can Crustacea also be thought of a monophyletic team? if that is so, then that are their closest relations in the Arthropoda? The solutions to questions corresponding to those will play a key function in knowing styles and tactics in arthropod evolution, together with the disappearance of yes physique plans from the fossil checklist, in addition to incidences of transition from aquatic to terrestrial environments. Crustacea and Arthropod Relationships, written via a staff of the world over famous specialists, offers a wide selection of viewpoints, whereas providing an up to date precis of contemporary development throughout numerous disciplines. With wealthy aspect and vibrancy, it addresses the evolution and phylogenetic relationships of the Arthropoda dependent upon molecular, developmental, morphological, and paleontological facts. quantity sixteen is the 1st within the sequence not to be completely devoted to discussions particular to crustaceans. whereas it's nonetheless crustaceo-centric, the concentration of this quantity has been prolonged to incorporate different teams of arthropods besides the Crustacea. This wider concentration deals hard possibilities to guage higher-level relationships in the Arthropoda from a carcinologic point of view. This quantity is devoted to the profession of Frederick R. Schram, the founding editor of CrustaceanIssues in 1983, in acceptance of his many stimulating and wide-ranging contributions to the evolutionary biology of arthropods in most cases, and of crustaceans specifically.
