"During his long and industrious life Professor Sars worked in many branches of marine zoology (Whales, Fishes, Mollusks etc.) and everywhere with singular success; in later years his special studies centred in the vast field of the Crustacea. The first parts of "An Account of the Crustacea of Norway" were published in 1890. Though Sars did not reach to complete this work, the nine volumes published, comprising abt. 2400 pages of text and more than 1100 plates, will always remain a standard source of knowledge to all students of this group and a monument to the genius of G. O. Sars. The Board of Directors of the Bergen Museum is proud of having been the medium of presenting this work to the scientific world.
