I suggest that the annelid fan(s) consult:
Florkin, M. and B. Scheer. l969. Chemical Zoo-
logy. Vol. IV. Annelida, Echiura, and Sipuncu-
la. Academic Press.548pp. This comprehensive
volume has literally tons of info by the likes of
Prof. R.B.Clark, Rod Dales, et al.
Hartman, O. l95l. Literature of the Polychaetous
Annelids. Vol. I. Bibliography. Allan Hancock
Foundation, USC. Edwards Brothers, Inc., Ann
Arbor, Michigan. 290 pp. A comprehensive
compilation not likely to be seen again.
Reish, D. and P. Qian. l997. Fifth International
Polychaete Conference, Qingdao, PRC. Again
a recent compilation covering ecology, morpho
logy, etc. With the foregoing, a real textbook.
Ushakov, P.V. l974. Fauna of the USSR. Poly-
chaetes. (in English). Israel Program for Scien-
tific Translations. Jerusalem. Another good
compilation of general and taxonomic info.
Banse, K. and K. Hobson. l974. Benthic Erran-
tiate Polychaetes. Bulletin of the Fisheries Re-
search Board of Canada. Bulletin l85. A good
introduction and loads of fairly recent refs as
well as keys and descriptions (plus a summary
The above would constitute a great text along with the
Dales and Mills volumes referenced by Read above.
My library also has volumes (taxonomic with fair amts
of biology) on the Medit., middle east, and far east poly
chaetes; I can only imagine what sits on the shelves at
