This is a photographic guidebook introducing marine planktonic community which consists of a wide variety of organisms travelling marine environments with the current. It contains underwater images showing the natural forms and colors of marine plankters, each of which is indicated with a scientific name and a detailed description. This book covers more than 250 species of marine plankters from many taxonomic groups including jellyfish, comb jelly, heteropod, sea butterfly, sea angel, veliger larvae of gastropods, squids and octopuses, polychaete and peanut worms, shrimp larvae, spiny and slipper lobster larvae, hermit crabs and squat lobsters, Crabs, mantis shrimp larvae, hyperiids, fish and its larvae, rhizarians, and blue-green algae. A larva of giant squid (Architeuthis dux) and some species of radiolarians are photographed for the first time in their living state, of which magnificent beauty could never be observed unless alive. These photographic records are scientifically valuable and meet the needs of researchers. It is doubtless that divers, guides, and researchers will get interested in the book.
Kaori Wakabayashi is an associate professor of aquaculture science at Hiroshima University, Japan. Her expertise is reproduction and early development of marine invertebrates, particularly in crustaceans and echinoderms. Her current interest is to develop aquaculture techniques for marine invertebrates with mimicking their natural habitat. She is also interested in taxonomy of the larval stages./Yuji Tanaka is a professor of planktology at Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology, Japan. His expertise is dynamics of marine plankton in diverse oceanographic conditions. /Hideki Abe is a photographer, specializing in photographing underwater creatures.
