This volume consists of 13 contributions covering a broad
range of taxa, from bryozoans (1 paper) and crustaceans (9 papers) to pycnogonids
(1), brachiopods (1), and fishes (1). Two new families, 22 new genera and 112
new species are established. Many additional species are revised and illustrated,
and new data on their distribution are presented. Of particular interest in
this volume are the outstandingly diverse assemblages of ascophorine Bryozoa,
brachiopods and grenadier fishes recorded from New Caledonia.
