Product Description


"As the successor to the classic work on this subject, The Beetles of the United States: A Manual for Identification by R.H. Arnett, Jr. published nearly 40 years ago (1960), this excellent set is indispensable for graduate students, faculty, researchers, and professionals seriously interested in beetle identification and ecology." --CHOICE, January 2003. Un magnifique volume qui complKte le premier de la shrie, avec ses 22 familles les plus primitives des Colhoptkres, dont les Carabiques. Cette fois 109 familles sont traithes, soit 131 familles en tout. Nous sommes loin du premier volume de Ross Arnett "The Beetles of the United States" publih en un seul volume en 1962. J'avais quant a moi l'hdition de 1968. Cet ouvrage comportait alors 1112 pages et htait imprimh en petit format. La qualith de la publication et des illustrations n'htait en rien comparable aux volumes actuels. Une belle production de CRC Press qui fait honneur a cette maison d'hdition. Une trks complhte bibliographie termine les chapitres .... Fhlicitons, les auteurs, les collaborateurs, et finalement les hditeurs d'avoir rhalish ce magnifique ouvrage. Ces deux volumes restent indispensables a qui veut Htudier la faune colHoptHrologique de l'Amhrique du Nord et du Nord du Mexique, en un mot la faune nharctique. Cette faune a des hlhments en commun avec l'Asie et surtout le Vieux monde, les connections ayant existh a diverses hpoques avec les continents voisins. La faune des Antilles, de l'Amhrique Centrale n'est pas loin non plus et ce livre peut servir de base a leur htude. Une mise a jour de cette qualith serait peut-jtre nhcessaire dans notre pays, coordinant les Faunes de France, qui hhlas sont loin d'avoir fait letour des Colhoptires. Translation: " We have come a long way from the initial work of Ross Arnett" The Beetles of the United States" published in a single volume in 1962.... The quality of that publication and its illustrations was nothing compared to the present volumes. A beautiful production of CRC Press.... A very complete bibliography is at the end of each chapter." Congratulations to the authors, the collaborators, and, finally, to the editors for having put together this magnificent work. These two volumes will remain indispensable for those who want to study the Coleoptera fauna of North America that is north of Mexico, in a word the Nearctic fauna. This fauna has some elements in common with Asia and especially with the Old World, the connections having existed in various epochs with the neighboring continents. The fauna of the Antilles and of Central America is nearby and this book can act as basis for their study" -Pierre Jolivet, Nouvelle Revue d'Entomologie, Paris, France
