About the book:

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.
