Book Description

1 Nov 2005 9546422452 978-9546422453 Ill
This monograph on the longhorn beetles of the Lesser West Indies (Anguilla to Grenada) and Virgin Islands is the first regional synthesis covering all known species, including those described by the authors. The first part deals with such generalities like habitats and biogeography, phenology, previous studies and methods. The second part represents a monography of the 135 species involved, all keyed, with type locality, taxonomic remarks, diagnosis, variability, distribution, and biology. Most data on the species' distribution and biology, especially host plants relationships, are original. Most of the species have never been illustrated in colour so far. La presente monographie traite des Cerambycides peuplant les Petites Antilles (d'Anguille a Grenade), auxquelles nous avons associe les Iles Vierges. Fruit de plusieurs annees d'effort, cet ouvrage est en fait la toute premiere synthese des taxa caribeens - des plus anciens nommes a ceux recemment decrits par les Auteurs. Avec les generalites usuelles (techniques de capture, terminologie...) et un essai de biogeographie globale, la premiere partie presente les iles dans leur diversite, les formations vegetales s'y trouvant et les zones bioclimatiques insulaires. La seconde partie est une monographie des quelque 135 especes recensees avec, outre les cles de determination et les diagnoses, leur repartition, ethologie, variation et notes diverses. La plupart des observations se rapportant a leur distribution et a leur biologie sont originales - en particulier pour les plantes-hotes et la phenologie. Enfin, presque toutes les especes ont ete illustrees par des photos en couleurs, plusieurs ayant ete prises sur le vif.
