About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Galician

The SGHN (the Galician natural history society) has released a new atlas, the first in Galicia on two groups of Carabidae or ground beetles, and on the family Lucanidae.

This book was born of a project started many years ago that included the study of other groups of insects. The 164 pages of this book are organized in several introductory chapters on the history of the investigation of ground beetles in Galicia, the basic bioclimatology of Galicia, the outline of the work and its conclusions. Each species (the review covers twenty species) is discussed in a separate chapter that includes a map with the distribution, as deduced both from bibliographic data as well as data provided by various contributors, a brief review of its Galician, Iberian and worldwide distribution, its biology, environmental requirements, literature reviewed and tables with data available, as well as unpublished data collected from various publications. Each chapter is supplemented by an analysis of its conservation status under the criteria of the IUCN (Red Book) and a photograph of the species treated.

Summary in Galician:
A SGHN ven de publicar un novo atlas, o primeiro en Galicia sobre dous grupos de Carabidos e a Familia Lucanidae (á que pertencen as coñecidas vacalouras).

Este libro nace dun proxecto empezado hai moitos anos e inclúe o estudo doutros grupos de insectos. As 164 páxinas do libro están organizadas en varios capítulos introductorios sobre a historia da investigación dos carábidos en Galicia, a bioclimatoloxía básica galega, criterios de traballo e conclusións. Cada especie (consta da revisión de vinte especies) é analizada en un capítulo independiente que recolle un mapa coa distribución coñecida, tanto a bibliográfica como os datos aportados por diversos colaboradores, faise unha breve revisión da súa distribución galega, ibérica e mundial, a súa bioloxía, requerimentos ambientais, bibliografía revisada e as táboas cos datos dispoñibles, tanto de datos inéditos coma os recollidos de diversas publicacións. Cada capítulo compleméntase cunha análise do seu estado de conservación baixo os criterios da UICN (libro vermello) e unha fotografía da especie tratada.
