FRESHWATER CRAYFISHES OF NEW SOUTH WALES

by John R. Merrick

This small handbook (145 x 208 mm; 128 pp) provides a comprehensive introduction to the biology and conservation of Australian representatives of this important group of aquatic invertebrates. The contents cover those species that occur in the state of New South Wales - about 25% of the Australian fauna - but many observations and recommendations have relevance for other areas.

The text is fully sourced and maintains a clear, readable style for readers without specialised knowledge of crays. Environmental management , anatomy and identification are covered, a glossary of technical terms and an index are included. Diagrams and the excellent colour plates of live crays or habitats have been placed next to the relevant text. Some plates are the first published colour photographs of rare or poorly known species.

The cover is conspicuous for easy identification and laminated for hard wear; there is no dust jacket. The tough water-repellent cover enables the book to be used in field conditions with reduced risk of damage.
