About this book

Language: Spanish

This monograph of the Fauna Ibérica Series is devoted to the suborder Amblycera, and is the first part of a study on Mallophaga (insect ectoparasites of birds and mammals) found in the Ibero-Balearic area. The 79 lice species examined (from 28 genera and 8 different families) are bird parasites, and were collected on 89 birds species from 16 out of the 17 orders that exist in the area. The book is illustrated with 44 plates and contains several introductory chapters on general Mallophagan study. The second part of the monograph includes morphological characters and classification of Amblycera, as well as descriptions and dichotomical identification keys for families, genera and species. Also included in this volume are data on the geographical distribution and biology of each Amblycera species and on its parasitized hosts, as well as an updated bibliography, two appendices containing complete taxonomic nomenclature and a list of host birds on both the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands.
