This volume deals exclusively with the phylum Cnidaria, the group of animals that, among others, contains corals, anemones and jellyfishes. All three classes in the phylum - the Hydrozoa, Scyphozoa, and Anthozoa - are discussed in details. Chapters on evolution and reproduction biology of the cnidarians are also included. Several scientists, all experts in their individual fields, have contributed to this volume. With their help and that of scientific and popular literature, we have tried to make the content as up to date as possible. You will therefore find, not only an extensive list of references, but also a wealth of information never before grouped together in a popular book dealing with the cnidarians. The text is focused, both on the biology of the group, as well as on how to keep cnidarians successfully in aquaria. The book also contains more than 960 high-quality photographs showing different groups of animals in their natural habitat and illustrating details of their biology, as well as their growth and survival in "The Modern Coral Reef Aquarium".

This fourth volume of the encyclopedia of the Modern Coral Reef Aquarium covers important invertebrate groups: Mollusks, such as snails, slugs and bivalves, commonly found in the trade are discussed in detail. Like in previous volumes of this book series, also more obscure and rare members of the phylum are covered to the extent that this can be of value to the marine aquarist. Echinoderms ? or spiny skinned animals ? are shown in spectacular photos and the biology and aquarium care of the many interesting brittle stars, starfishes, sea cucumbers, and sea urchins are described in detail. This book also discusses the interesting group of sea squirts, or tunicates. These organisms, which are very insufficiently covered in most aquarium books, are dealt with in detailed accuracy and illustrated with over 700 magnificent color photos. As an introduction to the book, Dr. Bruce Carlson (former director of the Waikiki Aquarium/Hawaii) has written a fascinating chapter on ?The Future of Coral Reef Aquarium?. Buy this 440-page book and complete your knowledge on the invertebrates of ?The Modern Coral Reef Aquarium?!
