Bibliography on the Scyphozoa with selected references on Hydrozoa and Anthozoa


Our goal in assembling this bibliography has been to bring together literature references on all aspects of scyphozoan research. Compilation was begun in 1967 as a card file of references to publications on the Scyphozoa; selected references to hydrozoan and anthozoan studies that were considered relevant to the study of scyphozoans were included. In 1968, a major research program on the jellyfish of Chesapeake Bay was initiated at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) under Dr. E. B. Joseph, and work on the bibliography became an integral part of the program. In 1969 we began converting the bibliography into a form suitable for wider distribution, and in February 1970 a preliminary draft was completed. The present bibliography is an expanded and revised version of the preliminary draft
