Marine crustaceans of Southern Australia

The crustaceans in southern Australia are part of a diverse, endemic fauna of marine animals which live along this coast. The hundred or so photographs in this web site represent a small part of this fauna and serve to introduce the biology of marine crustaceans. Our aims in presenting the photographs are to illustrate the diversity of form among crustaceans and to encourage an interest in this forgotten part of Australia?s own biota. The text contains general information about some of the major groups and more detailed observations about some species.
