The Cicadas of Thailand, Volume 1, is the first of two volumes on Thai cicadas, the most fascinating and also least known representatives of a family of sonorous insects. Cicadas neither sing, nor stridulate, but tymbolize. The volume reveals the existence and the double life, larval and imaginal, of cicadas encountered during six years of research in Thailand is sub-mountainous forests.
The body of the text includes two chapters discussing general characteristics, acoustic and procreative ethnology, and exceptional or enigmatic aspects and behaviour. The text in enriched by drawings and photographs, mostly of living insects. It is accompanied by a CD comprising forty cicada sound productions (or tymbalizations), the acoustics made visual in ID and ethological cards, which form an original feature of pioneering study.
