Fredrik Pleijel and I would like you to know that our book 'Polychaetes'  will 
be available through Oxford University Press as of today.  

http://www.oup.co.uk/isbn/0-19-850608-2

Kristian Fauchald has written the Forward and there are  75 chapters. After 
dealing with the history of polychaete systematics, and things such as 
collecting polychaetes and the fossil record of polychaetes, we review 
basic anatomy  and terminology. Then follow 72 chapters reviewing major 
polychaete groups in terms of morphology, reproduction, natural history 
and systematics. There are 80 plates made up of  line drawings selected 
from the best that have ever been published. There are also 38 plates of 
SEM and LM micrographs, mostly previously unpublished. There is a 
colour section with 12 pages (96 photos) of pictures of a diverse range of 
polychaetes. There are also 4 (full page) paintings by Helena Samuelsson 
of polychaetes (Hediste, Flabelligera, Pectinaria and Eupolymnia) that we 
commissioned.  

We know the price is high, but we hope that the pictures make it 
worthwhile. There is some text of course..........; but we promise we didnt 
write the blurb at the website. Our aim is for this book to be a 
comprehensive guide for those wishing to learn about polychaete diversity, 
as well as a useful source for those with a sound knowledge of 
polychaetes. We have pointed out many of the areas where there are 
serious gaps in our knowledge just waiting to be bridged. In other words we 
want the book to be dated as soon as possible.  

The table of  contents is below.
