Item description for Handbuch der Zoologie: Volume 4/2: Insecta: Coleoptera, Beetles: Volume 1: Morphology and Systematics (Handbuch Der Zoologie/Handbook of Zoology) by Rolf G. Beutel & Richard A. B. Leschen...
This book is the first of two volumes in the Handbook of Zoology series which treat the systematics and biology of Coleoptera. With approximately 350,000 described species, Coleoptera are by far the most species-rich order of insects and the largest group of animals of comparable geological age. The beetle volumes will meet the demand of modern biologists seeking to answer questions about Coleoptera phylogeny, evolution, and ecology. This first Coleoptera volume covers the suborders Archostemata, Myxophaga and Adephaga, and the basal series of Polyphaga, with information on world distribution, biology, morphology of all life stages (including anatomy), phylogeny and comments on taxonomy.
