Item description for The Families of Diptera of the Malay Archipelago (Fauna Malesiana Handbooks, No 1) by Pjotr Oosterbroek...

"Fauna Malesiana" is an international initiative to assemble and diffuse knowledge of zoological diversity. The core activity of the Foundation is to facilitate the identification and management of the zoological diversity of Malesia, that part of Southeast Asia stretching from the Isthmus of Kra (Thailand) to the Solomon Islands. To achieve this the Foundation develops practical identification guides ("Field and Study Guide" series), expert systems and the present "Handbook" series. The main purpose of the "Fauna Malesiana Handbooks" is to summarize, and provide accesss to, the scattered literature on the diverse fauna of the region for both university education and biological research. This first volume deals with the circa 115 families of Diptera (flies and mosquitoes) known or suspectd to occur in the islands of Malesia. Each family is characterized, and a key using characters of the adult insects enables identification to family level. In addition, information is provided on biology, ecology, economic importance, distribution, and status of taxonomic knowledge, with key references to each family. It further includes an introduction to the higher classification, general biology and morphology, with an extensive glossary. A list of references facilitates access to the relevant literature.
