About this book

An unmodified paperback reprint of the 2006 hardback, that has been unavailable for some time.

A completely rewritten edition of the classic handbook, this fourth edition includes several new chapters and 32 pages of colour plates and in addition the text has mostly been re-written or fully revised and expanded. The nomenclature has been brought in line with current use, collecting/curatorial methods reflect best practice and plant/beetle and beetle/plant lists are included together.

Production of the Handbook has been overseen by two of Britain's leading entomologists who are also amongst the impressive list of contributing specialist authors. Recent additions to the British fauna, modern and traditional techniques are included. The user will appreciate all advice and comment given in the book is based upon collective years of practical experience of both curatorial methods and field craft; beetle family chapters have each been written by an internationally recognised authority.
