About this book

The present work is an attempt of inventorying the Mantid fauna of Orissa state based on the faunal exploration studies conducted by the Zoological Survey of India, Estuarine Biological Station, Gopalpur-on-sea during the years 2005 to 2007. Though collections for the present study were mainly made from Southern Orissa particularly from coastal districts, the Mantid Fauna known from the whole Orissa state is dealt with based on the information available in the literature.
