This taxonomic reference work, produced at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, provides multimedia information covering all species of the order Euphausiacea in the World Ocean. Most euphausiid species can occur in huge schools (krill), which are a major food source for larger nectonic animals. This CD-ROM contains up-to-date information on all 86 euphausiids, including a fully illustrated multiple-entry key, a picture key, interactive distribution maps, and a special database treating larval development for most species. All text is hyperlinked to an illustrated glossary. This is an excellent source of information for marine biologists, environmentalists and students.
