Incoming: Freshwater Crayfish: A Global Overview


A project I’ve been quietly working on is now up at the publisher’s website. Here is the publisher’s description:

Features

  • Provides an up-to-date reference work on commercially important crustaceans
  • Covers conservation status and biology of all endangered species, taxonomy, and distribution of crayfishes worldwide
  • Introduces a new model aquatic organism—a parthenogenetic freshwater crayfish

Summary

For their great commercial importance as a human food delicacy, crayfish are now becoming of wider interest to molecular biologists, and also to conservationists due to the fact that in some countries many of the native crayfish species are under threat from human activity, disease, and competition from other introduced crayfish species. Helmed by three editors in Japan, Europe, and the US, this book invites contributions from experts around the globe, covering the conservation status and biology of all endangered species, taxonomy, and distribution of crayfishes worldwide.

In addition to helping with the editing, my name appears on a couple of chapters, too.

It’s slated for release early in 2015. Start recommending to your libraries and saving for your own copies today!
