About this book

Diptera is an order of animals that have achieved phenomenal success: we meet flies and mosquitoes more often than any other insects. Usually meeting them does not please us: Dipterans are intrusive, and some of their representatives become a real issue in people's lives. However, the world around us is inhabited not just by butterflies and orchids – it is worth getting to know all the neighbours. Moreover, most Dipterans either do not pester us or anyone else. Diptera: An Introduction to Flies is easy to read and gives a general introduction to this order of amazing insects.

The book was first published in Russian in 2019. the current English version was substantially extended and revised by the author and editors.
