The Atlas of Marine Invertebrate Larvae is the most comprehensive guide to larval form and anatomy ever produced. Each chapter provides a referenced overview of life cycles, reproduction, embryology, larval life, larval form and metamorphosis in a particular group of invertebrates. More than 1200 drawings and photographs illustrate the gross anatomy of all known types of marine larvae and provide a visual survey of the range of larval diversity within each phylum.

This book assembles the best larval photographs previously published in scientific literature into one place. Many of the plates, which include color photographs and numerous scanning electron micrographs, are original. Contributed chapters and illustrative material is covered by more than 50 recognized authorities on larval development from throughout the world.
