Neil Cumberlidge (Biology) has recently authored two peer-reviewed publications: “Freshwater decapod conservation: recent progress and future challenge” and “An overview of the Afrotropical freshwater crab fauna: Diversity, biogeography, and conservation (Brachyura, Potamoidea, Potamonautidae and Potamidae).” Cumberlidge also co-authored a third publication (with Darren Yeo of the National University of Singapore and Sebastian Klaus of the Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany) titled “Preface freshwater decapod biology in the 21st Century.”

All were published in 2014 in Volume 19 of the series Crustaceana Monographs: Advances in freshwater decapod systematics and biology. The volume was also co-edited by Cumberlidge (with Darren Yeo and Sebastian Klaus) and includes 15 scientific contributions by 28 internationally-recognized specialists in freshwater crustacean conservation. The Crustaceana Monographs series is published by Koninklijke Brill in The Netherlands. The first of these publications was presented by Cumberlidge, who gave the invited keynote address at the 21st International Senckenberg Conference on the Biology of Freshwater Decapods in Frankfurt, Germany, in 2010.
