About this book

Handbook of Common New Guinea Beetles provides the means for identification of the larger and more important families of beetles occurring in New Guinea. At least one representative of each major family is illustrated. Some of the larger common species are also illustrated or mentioned in text, with species or at least genus names. There is a key to the families of beetles treated, and hints on collecting and care of collections, as well as a glossary and index. The introduction presents pointers on structure and identification characters, as well as other subjects, such as distribution, ecology and importance to agriculture and forestry.
