Here is a synopsis:

BRIDGE portion includes a report of the vent shrimp Chorocaris and

vent shrimp away from hydrothermal vents.  Also reported is an examination
of the juvenile stages and some DNA investigations of larval types.
Lastly, a list of recently published BRIDGE volumes from meetings in
1995-1997 is presented.

* An article on the Xenophyophores by Ole Secher Tendal (Copenhagen).
