From the reviews: "This book is a welcome ... summary of just the introduced marine crustaceans, with the number and diversity of alien species listed here likely to surprise most professional marine biologists. The chapters cover a mix of topics with different approaches, some dealing entirely with the economic or ecological effects of a single species and others concentrating on a particular geographic region. ... A valuable addition to the literature on introduced species. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries." (G. C. Jensen, Choice, Vol. 49 (6), February, 2012)
