About this book

Language: English with bilingual dedication in English and Spanish

With loss of habitats throughout the world occurring at a staggering rate, it is critical to document what is being lost. Photographic Guide to Longhorned Beetles of Bolivia strives to do that by focusing on longhorned woodboring beetles in Bolivia. Wholesale clearing of large tracts of land kills everything or forces species to move quickly to other areas, disrupting the balance of the ecosystem. Photographic Guide to Longhorned Beetles of Bolivia will help people discover and appreciate some of the amazing diversity of life that exists in the undeveloped and/or remote natural areas of Bolivia.

Nearly 1,900 species of longhorned woodboring beetles (Disteniidae, Vesperidae, and Cerambycidae) are known from Bolivia (with more than 200 species yet to be determined). Photographic Guide To Longhorned Beetles Of Bolivia features 500 of them, representing the breadth of morphological evolution.
