Geoff has noticed a listing of the contents for Volume 7 of the
Taxonomic Atlas of the Santa Maria Basin (Flabelligeridae to
Ampharetidae) on the Santa Barbara Museum web site.
I want to inform everyone that those contents are essentially
meaningless. They refer to the final report version that was submitted
to the Department of the Interior back in 1996 in order to close out the
contract. At that time, only five families had been completed:
Flabelligeridae, Acrocirridae, Fauveliopsidae, Capitellidae, and
Ampharetidae. All chapters were and still are in review and revision and
7 additional families will be added to the published version. At this
time, we anticipate completing the draft of Volume 7 by the end of the
summer, hopefully to be officially published before 1998 comes to a close.
Completion of vol. 7 has been painfully slow due to all of the authors
being busy on other projects and activities.
If you are not aware, volumes 4-6 are now fully back in print. Vol.4 in
fact, has been partially revised and represents a revised edition. Changes
included editing to bring the style of descriptions more in line with vols.
5-6, correction of errors and typos, and clarification of several keys,
descriptions, and identifications.
Anyone needing copies of these volumes can contact Paul Scott at the Santa
Barbara Museum of Natural History for ordering information.
