Title:The Crayfishes of Kentucky
Author(s):Taylor, Christopher A.; Schuster, Guenter A.
Geographic Coverage:Kentucky
Abstract:This book is intended to provide an up-to-date list of known crayfish species from the state of Kentucky. Distribution maps, illustrations, photos, and a key are provided to assist those interested in identifying Kentucky crayfishes. Information on the habitat and biology of each species is also provided, as is a summary of the historical efforts of crayfish biologists, or astacologists, in the state. The material presented in the following pages should not, however, be taken as the final word on crayfishes in Kentucky. Future work will surely provide new information on the life histories and may yield new distributional records, especially for those species that are difficult to collect, such as the burrowers. We hope this book will serve as a catalyst for such scientific efforts.
