About this book

Language: English, with some contributions having bi- or trilingual abstracts in English, French, and German

From the preface:

"It was Peter Neu who had the idea to organise a first European conference on caddisflies (Trichoptera). He asked the author if this event could be held in Luxemburg. With the support of the Director of our Museum and the funding of the National Research Fund (FNR) the project could start. The aim of this initiative was to create a communication platform for Trichopterologists on a continental level.

The conference had a good success, with a total of 62 participants from 19 nations, 16 lectures and 11 posters. The fact that the venue was a Conference-Hotel in the north of Luxemburg, near the river Sure, one of the less polluted flowing water in Central Europe gave the opportunity for the participants to collect caddisflies, particularly with the use of light traps set around the venue.

Unanimously the participants agreed to produce a publication with the proceedings of the conference. After a long and somehow time-consuming task, we are pleased to publish these proceedings in this volume of our monographic series, Ferrantia. The first chapter brings the programme of the conference. The scientific contributions follow in alphabetic order of the authors' names."
