The authors present a complete summary of anomalous plasma transport theory, as it is presently used in the NRL multi-fluid HANE coupling codes. Anomalous transport due to five different microinstabilities -- magnetized ion-ion, unmagnetized ion-ion, modified two-stream, ion sound, and beam cyclotron -- is covered. The principal results, turn-on conditions and anomalous transport coefficients, are first presented in a concise form suitable for ready reference, and use in future fluid codes. The detailed theory of each micro-instability, including derivations of the transport coefficients, discussion of assumptions, and summaries of the particle simulation results for each instability, is then discussed in a series of appendices.
