Media reviews

"Hopkin and Read have written a superb and much needed general introductory book on millipedes. The figures are informative, detailed, and well integrated with the text. The authors' writing style is straightforward, thorough, and even. The printing and binding of the text are excellent; the references extensive and contemporary. All in all, an important text that should be in the libraries of colleges and universities with undergraduate and graduate programs in agriculture, biology, entomology, and natural history."

"If you are interested in rearing millipedes, this book has lots of basic and applied information that will allow you to better understand the biological requirements of these fascinating arthropods."
– Young Entomologists' Society
