Abstract[...] This is the first of two volumes devoted to the Copepoda, a group of crustaceans of the utmost importance in marine ecosystems. It deals with the order Calanoida, which represents the bulk of marine plankton and a crucial link in pelagic food webs. A second volume corresponding to marine copepods will be devoted to the remaining Copepod orders, and is expected to be ready for publication soon. This updated revision of the calanoid copepods is necessarily a thick, heavy book. It opens with an introduction of more than 100 pages that includes not only a solid discussion on the systematic position and phylogeny of copepods, but the generalities of the external and internal morphology (musculature, nervous and reproductive system, vision and other receptors) of adults and juveniles, their biology and ecology, from reproduction, swimming behaviour, feeding and growth, to their role as predators (and prey), and even sampling and study methods. In itself this introduction contains the main traits of copepods and their role in marine pelagic systems. Geographically the study extends well outside the limits of Iberian waters, covering the whole Mediterranean, and the Atlantic from the latitude of Bretagne to Cape Vert, including the Canary Islands [...]
