About this book

Myriapods are the most common and familiar creatures on the earth known by their multilegged appearance. They occur commonly around the human habitats, in gardens and under flowerpots.

The present book deals with the 578 bibliographical references spanning over 250 years from the Indian subcontinent along with a pictorial key to the identification of Myriapods. The book also contains the names, addresses and expertise of various Myriapodologists currently active, which will be useful for future workers in this group.
