From the reviews:

"This well-edited, multiauthored book reviews how crustaceans--mainly aquatic--orients to and communicates via chemical signals and cues and thus helps us understand the ocean's cryptic life. ... This volume will be of concern to anyone working with the chemical ecology of aquatic organisms as it represents steps toward deciphering the perceptive world of aquatic organisms and identifies future research avenues." (Thomas Kiorboe, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 87 (2), June, 2012)
