Thank you for your reply. From what I have read from the editor and your comments, it sounds like an error was made somewhere in the printing. Since you purchased the book from XXX, and not Elsevier directly, you will need to contact the vendor you purchased the book from and see if they will provide you with a replacement copy or refund your money. I hope this information helps.
Elsevier Customer Support...........So, as you can see y'all, I just got played for $60. Academic Press, if you want to call it that, makes no mention of fixing the error or even bringing it to light. They left out the entire list of c. 4000 genera that is present in the $4 earlier editions. Wow. This list is integral to the book. Also, this work has major flaws elsewhere and is hastily copied and pasted together with no regard. For example, look at pg. 573 'Organism Glossary" The forward to this glossary is all wrong -it speaks only of Protoctista being in the glossary, even though every other phylum is included! It's an Organism Glossary! Stay away from Academic Press and Elsevier folks, this is a high priced blunder. Why wasn't this caught? This is horrible. I want to study the missing information, as things have changed from the early 1980's edition. I sent a letter to Dr. Chapman in Woods Hole MA, the only surviving author. Will update if anything new.
