This fifth volume of The Crustacea contains chapters on:
● Devoting a chapter to Pentastomida
● Class Eupentastomida
● Orders Bochusacea, Mictacea, and Spelaeogriphacea
● Order Amphipoda
● Order Tanaidacea

For those working on Arthropoda, it will be obvious that the chapters on Pentastomida are newly conceived. The other chapters in this book constitute updated translations of contributions in the French edition of the Traité, volume 7(III)(A), while the order Bochusacea, not featuring in the French version as only more recently described, has been added in a combined treatment with the two closely similar orders.
Overall, this constitutes the eighth tome published in this English series, viz., preceded by volumes 1 (2004), 2 (2006), 9A (2010), 9B (2012), 3 (2012), 4A (2013), and 4B (2014). From vol. 4A onward the chapters are no longer published in the serial sequence as originally envisaged, because the various contributions, both the updates and the entirely new chapters, become available in a more or less random order. Yet, when completing this series, all major issues as well as all taxa currently recognized will have been treated.

With this edition, access to the texts of the famous Traité de Zoologie is now available to a worldwide readership. Parts 1, 2, and 3A of volume VII, i.e., the Crustacea, were published in French in, respectively, 1994, 1996, and 1999. Brill recognized the importance of these books and arranged for a translation to be made. However, some of the manuscripts dated from the early 1980s and it was clear from the beginning that in many fields of biology a mere translation of the existing text would not suffice. Thus, all chapters have been carefully reviewed, either by the original authors or by newly attracted specialists, and adequate updates have been prepared accordingly.

This second volume of The Crustacea, revised and updated from the Traité de Zoologie contains chapters on:
-The circulatory system
-The digestive tract: anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry
-Osmoregulation: morphological, physiological, biochemical, hormonal, and developmental aspects
-The endocrine organs
-The ontogeny of sex and sexual physiology
-The origins of crustacean larvae

The volume concludes with a list of contributors, as well as with both taxonomic and subject indices.
