About this book

Language: Italian with bilingual key in English and Italian

Volume 43 covers the Plecoptera. They are mostly unknown in Italy, not only to the general public, but often also to fishermen, naturalists, enthusiasts and amateur and professional entomologists. Inconspicuous, short-lived and difficult to detect, they are important indicators of water quality and the abundance of fish, because the presence of these insects in a stream is itself evidence of a certain integrity: one must realise that the Plecoptera are a major food source for salmonids and therefore occupy a key role in the ecological chain of mountain waterways and sub-mountain a book to identify them.

Summary in Italian:
I Plecotteri sono per lo più sconosciuti in Italia non solo al grande pubblico, ma spesso anche a pescatori, appassionati naturalisti ed entomologi dilettanti e professionisti. Poco appariscenti, dalla vita breve e difficili da identificare, sono importanti indicatori della qualità delle acque e della pescosità, in quanto la presenza di questi insetti in un corso d'acqua è di per sè testimonianza di una certa integrità dello stesso: si deve considerare che i Plecotteri rappresentano una delle principali fonti di cibo per i salmonidi e occupano dunque un ruolo chiave nelle catene ecologiche dei corsi d'acqua montani e sub-montani Un libro per identificarli.
