During the last fifty years considerable attention has been paid to the study of the marine animals, which directly or indirectly bring about the deterioration of submerged timber. They belong to two groups, molluscs and crustaceans. A lot of work has been done on the moUuscan wood-borers but even now information on the crustacean wood-borers is scanty. The present paper gives a classified list of the crustaceans which are known to bore into timber and a resume of the published information on their biology.
