Literature and Web Links
- For more information regarding the major groups of extant
decapods please visit www.nhm.org/guana/bvi-invt/bvi-surv/deca-inf.htm.
This is a really good introduction to the groups and has many
more incredible pictures of decapods other than those that I
have used throughout my webpages.
- Still interested? I strongly recommnend that you check out
the Crustacean Society at http://www.vims.edu/tcs/
- Finally, if you are specifically interested in the astacideans
(crayfish), then you may be interested in joining the International
Association of Astacology. You can find them at http://crayfish.byu.edu/IAA
