The Magnitude of Global Marine Species Diversity
TLDR
The first register of the marine species of the world is compiled and it is estimated that between one-third and two-thirds of marine species may be undescribed, and previous estimates of there being well over one million marine species appear highly unlikely.
Seamount benthic macrofauna off southern tasmania: community structure and impacts of trawling
The benthic macrofauna of a group of small seamounts south of Tasmania was surveyed with a dredge and camera to assess the impact of trawling for orange roughy (Hoplostethus atlanti- cus;
Marine Decapod Crustacea of Southern Australia: A Guide to Identification
A comprehensive guide to the identification of more than 700 species of Decapod and Stomatopod crustaceans from southern Australian waters. It is liberally illustrated with more than 1000 line
Introduced and cryptogenic species in Port Phillip Bay, Victoria, Australia
TLDR
In contrast to Northern Hemisphere studies, PPB (and Southern Hemisphere introductions in general) have significantly different suites of successfully invading taxa.
A PHYLOGENY OF THE FAMILIES OF THALASSINIDEA (CRUSTACEA: DECAPODA) WITH KEYS TO FAMILIES AND GENERA
TLDR
A computer-aided phylogenetic analysis of the families has confirmed the monophyly of the infraorder, based largely on the unique possession of a setose lower margin to pereopod 2, and the Thalassinidea are divided into three superfamilies: Thalassinoidea and Callianassoidea, more closely related to each other than to Axioidea.
Higher classification of the flabelliferan and related Isopoda based on a reappraisal of relationships
TLDR
Morphological characters are used to explore relationships between 35 genus-, family- and suborder-level taxa of flabelliferan Isopoda in a cladistic analysis and to derive a new classification, and unambiguous relationships between most families are resolved.
A new classification of the Galatheoidea (Crustacea: Decapoda: Anomura)
The high level classification of the Galatheoidea, popularly known as squat lobsters, has been relatively stable for almost a century. Multiple recent studies of their interrelationships, however,
Phylogeny and biogeography of the Gnathiidae (Crustacea: Isopoda) with descriptions of new genera and species, most from southeastern Australia
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis of the Gnathiidae suggests the most significant evolutionary events in the radiation of the family took place in the cold waters of the southern hemisphere.
