About this book

Language: English

Originally published in 1921. The insects are the largest class in the animal world, outnumbering other animals. They are distributed throughout the world from the Polar Regions to the tropics and are found on land in fresh and salt water, and in salt lakes and hot springs. Insects represent over half of the planet's biological diversity and play a key role in our ecosystem. Their presence or absence greatly affects the ecological health of an area. India has millions of species of insects, which makes it increasingly difficult for the entomologists/zoologists to classify them correctly.

Catalogue of Indian Insects is divided into 5 volumes and covers 29 parts. Volume 1 deals with Part l to Part IX. It covers Acrydidae, Culicidae, Bombyliidae, Trypetidae, Nitidulidae, Stapylinidae, Lasiocampidae, Amatidae and Zygaenidae. Volume 2 gives a detailed account of Part X to Part XVII. This volume covers Stephanidae, Brenthidae, Tabanidae, Cicindelidae, Palpicornia, Cecidomyidae, Cosmopterygidae and Yponomeutidae. Volume 3 is devoted to Part XVIII i.e. Carabidae. Volume 4 covers in detail Part XIX to Part XXV. This volume deals with Gyrinoidea, Alucitidae, Lycidae, Phalonidae and Chlidanotidae, Chalcidoidea, Evanidae and Thysanoptera. Volume 5 of the book describes the Part XXVI to Part XXIX. This volume deals with Serphoidea, lsoptera, Anthribidae and Asilidae.

This historical reproduction of this book fulfills the long-felt needs of students, teachers, and researchers engaged in the fields of entomology, agriculture, ecology, fisheries, forestry, paleontology, zoology, botany, plant science, medical and veterinary science. lt is hoped that this publication will be of immense value to naturalists, ecologists, environmentalists, garden specialist, forest officials, museum experts and extension workers.
