Just to let let you know that an Overview of the conservation status of marine 
invertebrates in Australia's EEZ by Ponder et al. has just gone onto the 
Australian Museum web site and subsequently will go on as pdf file - while 
there isn't a lot on worms - there is a lot on threatening processes many of 
which impact on soft bottom communities where polychaetes dominate - so 
people may find this interesting - good bedtime reading and there is a very 
extensive reference list.   

Cheers- Pat
