Abstract BOOK REVIEW
by Maria Byrne, Professor Marine and Developmental Biology, University of Sydney:

This important new book on the amphipods of the Great Barrier Reef is the result of years of collective effort by an international team of 20 amphipod experts. It fills a major gap in knowledge of the amphipods of Australia, as previously the tropical fauna was poorly known.
