A valuable source of income, its abundance or rarity often reflects the health of ecosystems occupied by these crustaceans. This comprehensive reference brings together all that is known of these fascinating animals. It will appeal to biologists, zoologists, aquaculturalists, fishery biologists, and researchers working with other lobster species, as well as neurobiologists looking for more information on the model system they so often use. Key Features * First comprehensive book on the American lobster since Herrick's century-old monograph * Provides crucial background for neurobiologists who use this crustacean as a model organism * Contains a comprehensive treatment of the lobster fishery and its management."@en ;
