A Provisional List of Systematic Literature on Marine and Brackish Water Invertebrates of the Western Gulf of Mexico
MetadataShow full item record
This list attempts to include the most useful references to the invertebrate groups, except internal parasites, occurring on the coasts of Louisiana and Texas. In many groups there is no monographic treatment, and descriptions of species are scattered through many separate papers often in inaccessible journals. Such isolated references, except when they concern important or widely distributed species, are not cited as they are useful only to specialists in the particular groups. In the absence of any monographic treatment, determinations should not be attempted by a general practitioner.
