About this book

This is the first comprehensive synopsis of the biodiversity of Diptera, which with more than 150,000 described species contain more than one tenth of all described animal species. The first part is a review of what is already known, the second part discusses the importance of Diptera diversity and how to estimate the still unknown proportion of our fauna, and the third part discusses the digital and molecular tools needed to document the fauna. A concluding chapter deals with the gloomy perspectives of the critical lack of taxonomists. The book will have an emphasis on principles and analytical approaches as well as on practical `how-to' information.
