About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Czech

This volume discusses the biology and ecology one hundred and one species of ladybugs living in Central Europe (one more than the first edition). Most species are illustrated with photographs of adult beetles from collections or from nature. Photographs of larvae and pupae are also given for a part of the species. Identification keys for adult beetles and larvae will make it possible to identify specimens on the basis of diagnostic features for tribes, genera and species, as well as by colour patterns on the wing covers and chest (for larvae on the upper anal region) or other conspicuous morphological features. The morphological characters are illustrated with black and white drawings linked to a pictorial appendix located between the Czech and English text. The text is supplemented by a revised list of tribes and genera of ladybugs around the world.

Summary in Czech:
Kniha přináší údaje o biologii a ekologických nárocích sta a jednoho druhu slunéček žijících ve střední Evropě. Většina druhů je ilustrována fotografiemi dospělých brouků ze sbírek nebo i z přírody. Pro menší část druhů jsou uvedeny i fotografie larev a kukel. Určovací klíče dospělých brouků a larev umožní určovat exempláře jak na základě diagnostických znaků pro triby, rody a druhy, tak podle barevných vzorů na krovkách a na hrudi (u larev na vrchní straně zadečku), anebo podle jiných nápadných morfologických znaků. Morfologické znaky jsou ilustrovány černobílými kresbami spojenými v obrazové příloze nacházející se mezi českým a anglickým textem. Text je doplněn revidovaným seznamem tribů a rodů slunéček celého světa.
