Abstract

The content of this wonderfully written zoological monograph is clearly reflected in its title. The book is offering a comprehensive and most up to date revision of the monotypic group of bathyal and partially abyssal shrimps Prof. R. N. Burukovsky was specializing on for nearly 40 years. Currently, the family Nematocarcinidae includes 6 genera and 49 valid species. This includes 4 genera and 26 species described by the author over his academic career. The largest number of species (43) belongs to a polytypic genus Nematocarcinus . The monograph opens with a historical overview of the family description and research. A significant portion of the monograph (over 65%) consists of an illustrated taxonomic review of the family based on numerous author’s personal collections. It also incorporates a detailed revision of the original collections housed by a number of leading natural science museums in France, Germany, United States, United Kingdom, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Russia.
