    Volume 2: Ephemeroptera of South America
    By Eduardo Dominguez, Carlos Molineri, Manuel L. Pescador, Michael D. Hubbard, Carolina Nieto

    • Publisher: --
    • Pages: 646
    • Edition: 2006-11-30

    • ISBN-13 / EAN: 9789546422590


    For many years, students from numerous countries have complained about the lack of "tools" to identify aquatic invertebrates from Latin America. Keys found in accepted textbooks are mostly limited, superficial or too popular-science. On the other hand, more advanced keys in academic books on aquatic invertebrates fail to cover Neotropical representatives in due detail. The few that do, however, also show too many defects in scope and presentation to be considered up-to-date. An international team of editors combined their efforts with Pensoft Publishers to launch a new major series on the aquatic biodiversity of Latin America. About 15 monographs, written by scientists from various countries, will offer a new, unrivalled view of the marvellous aquatic world of South America! The series is addressed to zoologists, ecologists, hydrobiologists, biogeographers, conservationists and students interested in aquatic biodiversity. The series will be an imminent tool for any biological library. Volume 2 - This book covers all known (14) families, (103) genera and (470) species of the insect order Ephemeroptera from continental South America. It includes updated keys (in English and Spanish) to separate families, genera and species (when possible), as well as complete reference data on each taxon, considering its status, characters, biology and distribution. The book is addressed to specialists in systematics, ecologists, limnologists and biologists in general.

    Volume 3: Neotropical Ceratopogonidae, Diptera, Insecta
    By Art Borkent, Gustavo Spinelli

    • Publisher: --
    • Pages: 198
    • Edition: 2007-07-30
    • ISBN-10 / ASIN: 9546423017
    • ISBN-13 / EAN: 9789546423016


    This book brings together, for the first time, all known information on the 51 genera and 1095 described Neotropical species of biting midges. An overview of the group includes a discussion of bionomics, adaptations of the various life stages, habitats, their ecological roles (including disease transmission), collecting and preparation techniques, zoogeography and classification.

    A key to adults (including males) provides the first key to all the genera of this region. Limited keys to eggs and larvae are presented. Keys are written in both English and Spani. A table of all previous descriptions of immatures and a catalog of all Neotropical species is included.

    This book will be of interest to systematists, ecologists, medical entomologists and students wishing to undertake innovative research in a remarkably interesting and instructive group of insects.
