Author: Prof. K.Sakai (editor), contributors Dr. P.J.F. Davie, Prof. Dr. D. Guinot and Dr. M. Türkay
Based on the three volume work "Crabs of Japan and the Adjacent Seas? (1976) by Dr. Tsune Sakai, the information contained on this CD-ROM has been extensively revised and extended by the distinguished carcinologists: Dr. Danièle Guinot, Paris; Dr. Peter Davie, Brisbane, and Dr. Michael Türkay, Frankfurt am Main. More than 1250 species and subspecies belonging to 425 genera are now recognized, ranging from local (Japanese) endemics to widespread Pacific and Indian Ocean species. All species are described and illustrated, and all published distribution data checked, listed and mapped. A key is provided down to the (sub-)families, and for all families, genera, etc. a diagnosis and full synonymy is given. All text is hotlinked to a glossary of terms.
