Summary
This work for crab lovers and general readers features a non-technical writing style and many b&w photos. It describes the crab's biology and natural history and looks at its habitats, threats, and conservation. There is also material on the crab's commercial value, its role in scientific research and medicine, and representations of crabs in literature, film and TV, mythology, and astrology. Just when we were getting attached to the little guys, the book offers recipes for crab dishes. Weis teaches biology at Rutgers-Newark; she has written other books on marine science for general readers. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
