Abstract

The first international conference on Crustacea to be held in Australia took place at the Australian Museum, Sydney in May 1980. More than 160 carcinologists from 15 countries attended. Ninety papers and posters were presented. In general the conference was concerned with the biology and evolution of Crustacea and papers were presented on evolution, physiology, community ecology, behaviour, biogeography, reproductive biology and taxonomy. The twenty contributions presented in this volume represent a cross-section of the papers presented at the conference.

The conference organisers were excited by its success and appreciate the efforts made by all who attended. We are particularly grateful to the Australian Museum Trust for financial support, to the Australian Museum Society for organising teas and lunches and to the New South Wales Department of State Fisheries for allowing us to use the FRV Kapala for a conference field trip to collect crustaceans.
