9780643065574: Beetles of the World: A Key and Information System for Families and Subfamilies

Beetles of the World is the first comprehensive interactive system for identifying all families, most subfamilies and selected tribes and genera of beetles from any part of the world. Anatomical, biogeographical and ecological information is included for each group, as well as images of representative species and lists of published references.

The database consists of a set of 945 taxa (family, subfamily, tribe or genus), each of which is coded for 324 characters with from 1 to 13 character states (usually 2 or 3). There are 6 additional text characters, which include short statements on geographic distribution, biology (habitat, feeding habits etc.), nomenclature and classification. Also included are images of representative species with their accompanying specimen data and acknowledgments, and a short list of references pertaining to each group.

About the Author:

T. A. Paine

Review:

“I have used and tested [Beetles of the World] in detail over a relatively long time and found it a very easy, informative and powerful tool for the identification of beetle families and other included taxa as well as an interesting source of knowledge on beetle morphology and taxonomy.” (European Journal of Entomology)

"Beetles of the World provides not just a very functional interactive key, but a huge and invaluable resource of information on Coleoptera, presented in a way that is useful to the beginner as to the specialist.” (Systematic Entomology)

". . . this is an extremely useful aid for anybody not only seeking for identification of suprageneric beetle taxa, but also searching for information about beetle morphology, systematics, and even purely pictures of beetles and their lifestyle types." (SPIXIANA)
