About this book

Language: Spanish

This monograph is the first devoted to the Chrysomelidae, a family with nearly 36 000 described species and probably much more still undescribed. The peculiar generalities of the group are reported and roughly 200 species, about one fourth of the total, are dealt with, belonging to seven subfamilies: Orsodacninae, Zeugophorinae, Donaciinae, Criocerinae, Clytrinae, Cryptocephalinae, and Lamprosomatinae. The keys for the identification of these species are included, as well as the illustrative drawings and geographic distributions for each one of them. Moreover, in most cases, biological data of interest are also indicated. At the end of this book, there is a very extensive appendix of scientific nomenclature. This work and the planned subsequent ones, are up till now a unique synthesis on the whole Iberian-Balearic fauna of Chrysomelidae.

Summary in Spanish:
Esta monografía que presentamos es la primera dedicada a los Chrysomelidae, una familia con cerca de 36 000 especies descritas y probablemente muchas más aún por describir. En ella se tratan las generalidades propias del grupo y unas 200 especies Íbero-baleares, una cuarta parte del total, pertenecientes a siete subfamilias: Orsodacninae, Zeugophorinae, Donaciinae, Criocerinae, Clytrinae, Cryptocephalinae y Lamprosomatinae. Para poder identificar estas especies se incluyen claves, y se aportan descripciones, ilustraciones, y las distribuciones geográficas de cada una de ellas. Además, en la mayoría de los casos, se proporcionan datos biológicos de interés. Al final del libro se añade un apéndice muy detallado de nomenclatura científica. Este obra, junto con las subsiguientes planificadas, constituyen hasta ahora la única sýntesis del conjunto de la fauna Íbero-balear de coleópteros Chrysomelidae.
