dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this book was to summarize in a convenient form the available knowledge about the Gulf of Mexico. The Gulf of Mexico was defined as a partially landlocked body of water indenting the southeastern periphery of the North American Continent. Its eastern boundary was drawn from Cabo Catoche at the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula to Key West at the southernmost tip of Florida. This boundary does not constitute a natural barrier; it was arbitrarily determined because of the necessity of restricting the scope of the project. Inland the area under consideration extended to the limits of tidal waters. The book comprises a number of articles each written by a recognized authority in his field; these are arranged, with minor exceptions, in a taxonomic order following a list of phyla, classes, and orders prepared in 1936 for the American Association for the Advancement of Science. This plan was carried out with the following exceptions: the sections on Rotatoria and Branchiopoda were omitted and, for the sake of convenience, the articles on parasitic worms were assembled in a single chapter. A pertinent bibliography is given at the end of each section.en_US
