SCOPE OF THE SYMPOSIUM
Crustacea is a diverse group of arthropods with the highest species number in marine environment. One of the characteristic features of Crustacea is the high diversity of parasitic and symbiotic groups, such as rhizocephalan barnacles, cymothoid and bopyrid isopods, and pinnotherid crabs. Crustaceans also serve as hosts for ecto-symbiotic invertebrates, such as bivalves and annelids, and endoparasites. Further, crustacean burrows harbor a variety of inquilines, such as crabs, shrimps, bivalves, polychaetes, and fishes. The diversity of the species involved and symbiotic or parasitic interrelationship may vary depending on the environment or biogeographic histories. It is therefore important to bring together researchers studying symbiosis and parasitism in Crustacea in Asian region to better understand the issues and encourage new collaborations.
