ZOEA is a Newsletter intended for all workers interested in
crustacean larval development. ZOEA is a newsletter rather than a
scientific journal. Publication started in January 1994. Since this
moment, more than 1000 issue copies have been distributed to worldwide.
At present, it is published twice yearly, in spring and autumn.
Primary contents of ZOEA include short communications,
announcements, request for information, lists of recent publications,
posters and oral presentations in meetings, works in progress,
abstracts of doctoral theses, and a research directory.
ZOEA will hopefully serve as both "a platform for fruitful
discussion and exchange of ideas among carcinologists interested in
aspects of larval development", as Klaus Anger proposed in ZOEA's
inaugural issue, and a clearinghouse of information regarding both
research and researchers.
At present, most of ZOEA members are working on decapod larvae (61 %),
followed those studying copepod larvae (8.4 %), zooplankton (5.2 %), cirripeds
(3 %), mysids (1 %) and others (20 %). Geographically, they are
distributed as follows: Europe (38 %), Asia (29 %), North-America (21
%), South-America (11 %), Oceania (4%) and Africa (3 %). As you can
see, it would be desirable that ZOEA Newsletter arrives to a wider of
specialists interested in the larval biology of different crustacean
groups. So, it may be a good idea to make ZOEA known to other
colleagues and promote the creation of a major forum for many aspects
of the larval development in crustaceans. ZOEA's scope is very broad
with respect to taxonomy (all of Crustacea), geography (worlwide)
and biological discipline.
Subscriptons to ZOEA (15 U.S. $ or 1000 Spanish pesetas per
year) is possible by: personal check (U.S. Bank), international
postal giro, or credit card (VISA, MASTER-CARD).
For more information, please don't hesitate to contact the editors
or regional editors.
